I wonder if there are is any Quality loss if i connect my DAC to me TV instead of the PS3.
Here the setup.
DAC + AMP: Fiio e9k+e17
Sony HX 755 TV.
1: I connect the DAC to the Tv via Optical cable. In the PS3 Audio settings i choose HDMi. I Capture the Audio via the optical out on my Tv.
2: I connect the DAC directly to the Optical out of the PS3. In the PS3 Audio settings i choose Optical.
Which of the above is the best for Stereo PCM? Do they perform equally?
In another Setup i use a PS2. The PS2 is connected to the TV via Component cables.
1: When I connect the DAC via Optical with the TV, i get bad Sound Quality.
2: If i connect the DAC directly with the Optical Out of the PS2, i get better Sound Quality
Could it be that Component cables are inferior to HDMi when it comes to audio?
