So my sister gave me a PS3 Slim 120gb for Christmas and until now i have it plugged in via HDMI to my Asus VH242H. As i expected, the sound it's poor, those 2 buit in little speakers are not good enough for me. I've been searching google and already know that i can use a 2.1 sound system, a 5.1 with digital in, like the Logitech Z-5500 or go crazy and buy a receiver+speakers. Well, i don't want to spend so much money (saving it for Fermi), so i've found this product, from Sharkoon: Sharkoon X-Tatic Sound Control Unit Features: • Supports Dolby® Digital 2.0, Dolby® Digital 5.1 and Dolby® Pro Logic® • Supports the chat function of PS2®, PS3®, Xbox and Xbox® 360 • Dynamic Range Control Specifications: • Digital optical input (S/PDIF) • 2 analogue audio outputs for the X-Tatic headset • 3 analogue 3.5 mm audio outputs (front, rear, center / subwoofer) • 1 microphone connector for PS3® (USB A -> USB B) • 1 power connector • Dimensions: 15 x 122 x 56 mm (H x L x W) • Weight: 110 g Compatibility: • Xbox® / Xbox® 360: optical input • PS2® / PS3®: optical input / USB microphone connection • PC / MAC: optical input / USB microphone input • DVD / other sources: optical input Package content: • X-Tatic Sound Control Unit • USB microphone cable for PS3 and PC • Power adapter • Microphone connection cable for Xbox 360 (2.5 mm jack > 2.5 mm jack) • Optical connection cable (S/PDIF) • Manual (8 languages) http://www.sharkoon.com/html/produkte/headsets/x-tatic_scu/index_en.html?id=3 It only costs about €65, and apparently, if i'm not mistaken, i can plug it in to the PS3 through the supplied optical cable, and use the 3 3.5mm colored jacks to plug in my current set of Creative 5.1 speakers. Am i right or is something missing here?
