First, I'd like to say I'm somewhat of a new audiophile (and this is my first post here after much searching), and have only purchased my first pair of real headphones a few months ago (senns 448's) but my question mostly has to do with tv audio, as I'm very confident it'll more than meet my needs for music.
Basically, right now I can't afford a 5.1/7.1 setup, or even any decent speakers, so I've been using my senns through component cables, and the sound, quite frankly, isn't very good, and parts of the sound in films is really off (ones I'm very familiar with how they should sound) so I've been looking into potential ways to solve the issue. First, I was thinking of purchasing an entry level a/v receiver such as and get stereo into my headphones as almost all a/v receivers have headphone jacks.
So, my questions are these:
if I buy the HeadRoom Total BitHead would I be able to
A.) plug it in via USB into my PS3 then run my headphones out of the amp?
B.) have the sound quality boosted substantially from the component cables into my headphones if A.) isn't possible?
C.) find an adaptor for the USB or any other adaptor for the tv (I have a Vizio XVT473SV) to get better audio into the amp to drive my senns?
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
