My LCD Headphones Jack (3.5)
My LCD Headphones Jack (3.5) is making a lot of static noise.
Maybe something like this http://www.fiio.com.cn/product/index.aspx?...p;MenuID=020302 ? With their E3 as an amp would work?

With their E3 as an amp would work?It means I will have an Optical Cable running from my TV to the DAC, another one from the DAC to the Amp (and I will probably need an RCA to 3.5 Jack convertor also), and from the AMP to the Headphones. Wouldn't all those connections just hurt the sound more?They have a DAC with pre-build vol amp http://www.fiio.com.cn/product/index.aspx?...p;MenuID=020302, but I only have cox in and I need optical :\
The attenuator idea sounds interesting. Let me know if I got this straight:First, I need to connect my headphones to the TV Set, Crank up the volume and listen if the static noise becomes less noticeable. If it doesn, I can buy this Koss Volume Controller, set my TV Volume quite high - but Lower it on the Koss Volume, that way i'll have less static?
How does 5.1 to 7.1 conversion works to stereo?
It seems like Analog connection can also pass 7.1 surround?
How can you hear 5.1 channel tracks via stereo headphones?Does you need a special headphones for that?
Question is - does HDMI pass 5.1/7.1 output? or do I need dedicated optical cable for that?
On my example, the DAC going to do the Digital to Analog Re-Encoding. Does it work like you explained below (DVD/Blueray)? Does expensive DACs will be a better jobs then EBay's DAC cheap DACs? or is it standard conversion?
If so - why does my headphones (http://www.dansdata.com/hfi550.htm) claim they are 'surround' headphones?
Here is an example for "Ebay" DAC:http://www.dealextreme.com/p/digital-to-an...converter-73589
Does http://www.turtlebeach.com/products/audio-...-force-dss.aspx is basically a fancy marketing for DAC? or are they actually doing something extra with processing]
I can probably pick those also:http://www.dealextreme.com/p/fiio-d3-digit...converter-66303FiiO has a good name around. One of the reviewers mentioned it only decode PCM. Does it means it's will loss all the extra 5.1/7.1 details coming from the optical input?
Is the extra 40$ is worth it? Am I'm going to hear any difference with my headphones? or I would need better headphones to fully enjoy it?
