I'm thinking of buying a Schiit Bifrost and setting it up like this:
Xbox (spdif) > spdif to coax converter > Bifrost > Astro Mixamp > Lyr > HE-500
PC (spdif) > Bifrost > Lyr > HE-500.
I'd only get a simulated 5.1 instead of 7.1, but it might be worth it. If not, I can always just use the Bifrost exclusively with the PC. Thoughts?
What is the Bifrost going to do in between your PC and the Mixamp?
