Hello everyone.
I have been reading for a long time, and finally I have dedicated myself to entering this world.
I tell you my problem.
I seek to play music alone and exclusively from my PC and occasionally from my mobile. At first I wanted to buy a Pioneer vsx 934, but after reading for a few weeks, I decided to buy an SMSL Sanskrit 10th SK10 MKII and an SMSL SA300, so I could connect two speakers and a sub (speakers kenwood 4ohm, 89 dB and sub jamo j12)
I think it is the best low cost option (if I am confused correct me)
The problem comes now, I use my pc a lot to play, and I play with a HeadSet, to be able to listen well and speak.
Would there be a way to have everything connected? In other words, listening to music and if I want to start playing, wear helmets without disconnecting anything.
Greetings and thank you very much, I hope to continue learning with you.

Hi, you could get a headphone amp like budget favorites Jds Labs Atom or Schiit Magni Heresy for ~$100 / ~130€ in between your Sanskrit and amp. They have pre amplifier functionality so you should be able to connect your SA300 and headset simultaneously.

An another option would be to find a passive 1-in-2-out switcher like the ones from Nobsound and use an RCA to 3.5mm cable to connect your headset.

Edit: The most elegant solution would be to replace the Sanskrit with a dac/hp amp combo such as the M500 (way more expensive though).

Thanks for answering. But would the microphone work connected only by a 3.5 jack? HeadSet are the hyperX Revolver

The elegant solution, I'm out of budget.

Thank you

Ok, in that case I think you could use the headsets extension cable and connect the mic plug to your pc's microphone in. And the other headphone plug as I suggested in the previous post. Not 100% sure though, not too familiar with that headset. Hope you find a solution :)
