Was wondering if I could ask a question?
Have the 3800, and my Ps3, connected via HDMI.
I'm thinking of grabbing a headset for the small amount of online gaming I do, so I'd like them to double as headphones as well for other inputs so I don't keep Mrs Bolden up with the noise.
I've been looking at the turtle beach PX5's,
but was wondering about how I could rig this for other listening.
The headphone transmitter takes toslink, so I think that the theory is, I connect my devices to my amp (as I already have, Foxtel/DVD/PS3 via HDMI), and there is an optical out on the amp, so I connect that to the transmitter.
So far, this all makes a level of sense to me, the question is then, how do I tell the amp that I want to route my sound through the optical out instead of the speakers? Is that even possible?
Otherwise, I think that the option is to use a headphone 3.5mm jack to the Line in on the headphone transmitter, which I assume will work, but isn't digital sound, so not sure how the headphones will go doing it's 5.1 thing.
I'm no audiophile, so I'm not overly fussed, but figure if I'm going to by a headset so I can hear the game and chat (I need to keep the volume down of the amp) that I'd like to be able to purpose the headphones for other inputs......
Any thoughts/ideas/advice would be appreciated.
