Is there a way to put headphones on PS3? Something like PS3->amp->headphones? Will that work?
I've done this when I kept my ps3 next to my desktop. Set up the PS3 to output video only through hdmi to monitor, and stereo audio through RCA, connecting that to my amp.
I currently run PS3 > AX720 via Optical > Matrix M-Stage > Q701
Very nice sound and the AX720 + M-Stage actually do quite a good job for positional cues in fps (despite double amping...)
I'll be picking up a Bifrost soon and testing PS3 > Bifrost via Optical to see how much of a difference a good stereo DAC makes to virutal surround of the AX720.
Completely agree...my post may have been a bit misleading. I meant I was going to try hooking it up into the Bifrost instead of the AX720 to compare stereo gaming vs virtual surround.
My plan was if there wasn't a huge difference, then I would just sell off the AX720.
