PC > Headset > Speakers - Connections

Hey, I have a question about connecting my devices. I have an Arctis Pro Wireless and Kanto YU6 speakers.

If I go motherboard optical out to Arctis optical in > Arctis optical out to YU6 speakers, would this work and allow sound to come through both the headset and the speakers simultaneously?

Would there be any issues with the Arctis processing the sound and then sending it to the YU6 onboard dac?

The optical passthrough only works when you turn off the headset: https://www.reddit.com/r/steelseries...k_passthrough/
On PS4 mode it's opposite, both output at the same time: https://www.reddit.com/r/steelseries...ough_question/

Ppl should learn to add more info to their posts when they ask for help...
