How to mix 4 different sources to 1 output? (Mixer?)

  1. DSebastiao

    So, i have a ps4, xbox, pc, and want to have the sound of these 3 all into one output, if possible i would have another input to connect a bluetooth receiver, but, first question, is this a great ideia in terms of audio quality? Because that's the most important thing for me, if any of this hurts it, i won't do it.

    Now, what options do i have to do this? Probably a mixer, and in terms of mixers, what should i look for?

    I've been looking for some in a music store, but they all work with 6.3mm jack's, so i would have to buy a bunch of converters (and again, can it hurt audio quality?).

    Then, after the mixer, i can simply add a amp or a dac right? I'm also in need of something like that, an amp or dac.

    Overall, how do those people with setups that contain multiple high quality sources do?

    Thank you for your patience.

    A receiver is what youre looking for....plenty of inputs and an amp built in.

    Could you link me one?

    Whats your budget?
    Are you looking for analog or HDMI inputs/outputs?
    Planning on driving headphones with it?
  5. DSebastiao
    Budget can go from 50 to 100.

    I was thinking of 3.5mm inputs...

    Yes, headphones, sometimes might use the speakers.

    I dont know many receivers that cheap.
    Do you live in the USA,or? You can try to snag a vintage receiver for that type of cash or you can try to find a budget pre-amp but then you would need to buy a separate amp.

    Europe, doesn't really need to have an amp, i'm ok with something that mixes the sound, then i can get a cheap amp.

    Something like this would work,but the headphone jack would need to be on your amp.

    A vintage receiver would be an all in one solution but getting one in good working condition at that price might be tricky.

    Wow, looks great, can i adjust the levels of treble and such individually?
    Also, what's the best way to connect all these devices to that type of input? I said 3.5mm jack but i'll go with whatever is better.

    Yes,it has treble,bass and loudness,but you will need to adjust it on the fly for each channel(no memory)
    Most inputs will be either HDMI or RCAs.Most amps have RCA ins and outs.DACs will need optical or USB usually.

    Looks like that won't be an option, seems like it's only sold in the US, and shipping cost is pretty much half of the price of it, and i can't find a pre amp that's not meant for microphones.

    Also, currently i don't have an amp.

    Try Google "inexpensive preamp"
  13. DSebastiao
    Would something like this work? It says that is has 4 mic preamps, could i just connect things to the line in right below the mic and get the same effect that i would get with the one you linked?

    So you get a preamp and then what?Youre still going to need an amp so you can hear these different channels.The one you linked is more for entry level pro use.

    I think your best bet is an entry level receiver like this . ...or perhaps you can find similar for cheaper where you live.

    I'll get an amp more down the road, but for now, i need a solution to combine all these different sources.
