I got the idea I wanted a audiophile quality headphone system when after the second time I equalized my Plantronics 780 headset the audio sounded the best I have ever heard. So I wanted to take this headphone audio listening even further if possible. Consequently I ordered the Little Dot DAC_I Digital to Analog Converter as well as Little Dot MK IV with SE better tube option and the Sennheiser HD 600 headphones.
My question now is I was fixated with whether my 82 foot USB extension cable was good enough to drive the DAC of a system of this quality, but I found out I could use the HDMI audio via my television optical audio output so that raises another question.
I tried to find out if the television optical audio output was of audiophile quality, but the technical support person I spoke to on the phone about my LG 42LK450 television did not know. But he was able to tell me that the optical out can be said to just audio or PCM audio so what would you think my televisions out audio out quality will be and which of the two types of optical audio should I use to drive my DAC?
PS my DAC and headphone amplifier are coming from China and will not be here till maybe the end of next week.
