You can't run 3.5mm into the C200, because 3.5mm is analog and the C200 has only digital inputs.Hi. I’m thinking about buying one of these but one of my main uses will be for my Xbox Series X. I would be running a 3.5mm out from the controller to the C200. Anyone know how I would do this, is a 3.5mm to Coaxial going to cause any problems?
Thanks I’ll have a look into this, would need it to work alongside a mic plugged into the controller. I’m very surprised it works via USB as hardly anything does with the Xbox part from an Astro a40 mixamp. it’s an issue I’ve been trying to resolve for a while.
Hi. I’m no expert but I believe it would be fine for this.Hello everyone, this is my first post on ASR.
I have a question for you: I have an old AV receiver (Onkyo TX-SR508) connected to two yamaha NS-F51 speakers.
I would like to add the ability to listen music in LDAC Bluetooth and improve the sound quality. Do you think this SMSL C200 could help me? I would also connect the C200 to the pc via usb and to use my headphones.
I look forward to your help. Thank you very much and I congratulate you for the rich forum.
I apologize for my bad English.
Thank you very much for all.
An HDMI audio extractor with coax/optical output would be the best solution i think?I’ve been doing some googling and I don’t think it does. Microsoft say any USB Dac needs to be licensed by them also a couple of retailers state an audio splitter to optical out is needed to use it with the series x. I would be more than happy to be wrong though so if anyone has or can test it I would be very keen to hear otherwise.
hold on, you want to use the ldac bluetooth functionality of the c200? this is for digital inputs only, i.e. you your music source like cellphone/tablet will send digital music to the c200 via bluetooth (ldac) and you listen to music, either by connecting wired speakers or wired headphones.Thank you very much for your reply,
I think I will proceed with the purchase. On amazon I can have a 20% discount for a final price of 175 euros.
That's exactly how I'm going to use the c200. The yamaha ns-f51 are connected to an AVR to which I connect the c200 to which I connect my smartphone in LDAC which is compatible with LDAC. And Then the other way would be to connect it to the PC through the USB port or I could connect the optical output of my sound card and go into the optical input of the C200 and use the 6.3mm headphone output for my wired headset.
It should be fine like this, I would set windows volume to 98% and play with smsl volume for the need.Have a nice day English is not my native language
I recently purchased this magical piece of equipment to complement my sennheiser hd560s headphones. I will connect and use according to this scheme PC -> USB -> C200 -> Headphones.
I am just taking my first steps in the world of sound, what settings should I choose for the C 200? Do I need to change something in Windows settings? Need setting xmos usb dac driver control panel, ASIO ?
My eyes are running in different directions from different functions, I will be grateful if you answer my questions
Thanks. I don't want to use an audio extractor as it messes up the frame rate matching on my monitor. Since posting I've bought the SMSL HO100 which was on sale at Amazon for £104. I'm going to use the analogue in on that and then later down the line add a balanced dac. I'll use my Topping NX4 DSD as a dac until then.An HDMI audio extractor with coax/optical output would be the best solution i think?
