seeking small headphone amp with optical in

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have multiple tvs and multiple consoles in one room. We need individual headphones. I need a small optical input headphone amp that is ac. The jvc thingy is battery only. Something like that but with ac. Any suggestions? I can use one headphone amp with the 360, but I want to be able to use my ps2s and ps3 as well.

How much do you want to spend, and why Optical? There are amps out there that have Optical in, But they aint cheap because they need to have DAC built into them. Most Headphone amps are analog to analog. You'd have many more options if you were willing to use stereo RCA's as your input source.

Edit. I've been doing a boat load of research on Headphone Amps for use with my AKG K701s Headphone.com has some good stuff. Including this one with optical in

That looks like a small very nice amp, but it is pricey. I want optical so I can switch between a 360 and a ps2. It needs to be small, so no big receiver. I don't want a battery one. Just something so all three of is can have good sound without cluttering up the airwaves. I've found a 20$ analog that is small and ac. I might have to give up on the optical input.

That is a little much for what I want to do. I think I might go for the cheapie and forget about the ps2s. At least for a while. Thanks tho.
