So right now I own a pair of AKG 702, a Creative sound blaster Z card, and a playstation 4 I would like to use with my headphones. The PS4 has optical and hdmi. Im really confused whether I should be buying a reciever,Amp,DAC, or an astro mixamp which I've also seen recommended. My biggest goal is to get the best sound possible from my gaming systems.
Does anyone have recommendations ? I'd say my budget is around 500$. I like the idea of buying a reciever to manage all my hdmi and then an amp to hook up to it. Would this work ? Does anyone have any suggestions ?
