Hi there,i'm kinda new to the audio world so forgive me if this is a n00b question.
I didnt know where else to post this so i figured i might as well post this in this section.
I'm Frederic from Belgium in Europe and i want to buy a Sennheiser HD 800 headphone but i don't know how to connect a few things.
First of all i want to buy a DAC because all my things (PC,PS3,XBOX 360 and later on BluRay player) are connected through HDMI on a Marantz SR 7005 receiver.(wich i have yet to buy)
Then i want to buy a good headphone amp that matches the HD 800 because he deserves a good amp.
How do i connect my headphone amp to a DAC then the DAC to my receiver so i can hear all my things that are connected through HDMI through my headphone amp (if its possible at all)
I have a solution in mind but dont know if it will work because i have yet to buy my receiver,headphone(amp) and DAC.
solution : from receiver optical OUT to DAC optical IN,from DAC RCA OUT to headphone amp RCA IN.
Will i hear all my stuff that are connected through HDMI through the headphone amp or will i have to connect my stuff (like PC and PS3) separately through the optcial INs from my receiver to hear anything.
I appriciate all the advice from you experts because i really am a newbie on this matter.
I hope you will enlighten me with your knowledge
