firstly, sorry if this thread isn't belong to here.
this is my near future sound system
PS3 -> Optical out -> Fiio D3 -> O2 amp or Fiio E11 -> Beyer DT990 pro or Ultrasone HFI 580
( I've just ordered the Fiio d3, snd E11 this black friday, they will arrive soon.)
but I want to use this set with my laptop too, however, my laptop doesn't have optical out :-(
so please fill in the blank
laptop usb -> [???] -> Optical out to Fiio D3
I saw something like Turtle Beach Micro ii, Syba usb sound card. Do they work? I don't know much about the optical port, will the sound quality be different in each devices? Or they are the same since it comes out from optical port???
