Optical HD audio to 3.5mm headphones?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I have an Astro MIXAMP pro but every since I got it it had a subtle feedback. During gaming it was not bothersome; however, when watching movies it can be heard. I know now it's not a high end device, but I did not know so at the time, otherwise I wouldn't have dropped 140$ on it.

So now I need a relative cheap, good device that supports the common HD audio stuff, 7.1/5.1 dolby hd/dts/all that common stuff on Blu Ray, so that I can use it for PS3/PS4 with my Audio Technicas AD700's. Or is it possible to get a good soundcard for PC that has optical IN and 3.5mm OUT? So I can route PS3 sound through it? I can't afford the high end DAC's but I want one that allows the full potential of Blu ray audio for my AD700's.

Thanks

What do you mean with feedback? The Astro should do just fine, are you sure you don't have some artificial crystal virtual surroundifyer x-fizerabler enabled? I'm not sure of the device properties but I sure do hope you can disable all of those if you want to get just normal bitstream through it.
