Dear audiophiles, thank you for reading this. I'm hoping someone can help me get the best experience out of my HD650's which I've had for a few years now.
I have been using my HD650's with great pleasure on my PC (powered by an Asus Xonar Essence STX - Yes, I know many prefer a DAC/AMP setup). I love listening to music (and gaming), and do so through various platforms. Unfortunately I haven't been spending much time on my PC for a while now, mostly because I don't have a PCdesk since i've moved to a new home.
Thus I feel i'm wasting the great potential of my HD650's which I could be using on other platforms that I use quite frequently. Unfortunately these other platforms can't properly power the HD650's on their own.
I'm hoping to set up my HD650's to be used with amongst others my:
Nintendo Wii U
Playstation (3 and 4)
I guess somehow my console's and TV's audio could be channeled/broadcasted through my PC/soundcard/HD650. I don't mind the extra energy required to have my PC on. Unfortunately however, I haven't the slightest clue on how to achieve this. If anyone has helpful advice in this regard I would be very happy.
Another solution would probably be hooking my headphone to a DAC/AMP and connect that to the various platforms. Again, I have no idea what I would need, what platforms such a set up would work with, and how I should connect anything.
Any help is appreciated!
