I want to connect stereo-headphones (either AD700 or DT770 Pro) to my Laptop. To get decent sound quality I want to get one of the Astro Mixamps (Pro or 5.8) for better stereo sound for music and surround sound for fps gaming. I'm using a Toshiba Satellite L500-164 (specs: http://de.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/jsp/SUPPORTSECTION/discontinuedProductPage.do?service=DE&toshibaShop=false&BV_UseBVCookie=yes&PRODUCT_ID=1072417&BV_Script=/jsp/fixup/productPage ) with a Realtek onboard sound.
As i understand to get the best sound quality out of the Astros you need to connect them via Toslink. As I don't have a Toslink jack, can i just plug it in via USB and everythings works well or can I get an adapter and solve the problem that way?
Thanks in advance, I'm new to these topics
