I plan to buy an external speaker for my ps4 (Edifier S530D), however since I am very new to this stuff, I don't know which setup can give me the best sound quality possible. Here are the 2 setups I can do,
1) Plugging optical cable straight from PS4 to the speaker
2) Plugging HDMI to my monitor (ASUS VX239H) and from my monitor 3.5mm to RCA to speaker
I wish to know which setup will likely give me the best sound quality, or if I won't notice any difference either way. Other suggestions are welcomed too if there is no need to buy another piece of equipment.
Your help is much appreciated.
