Connecting a PS4 to an audio Interface?

Hi guys,

I am not sure if its possible but I would like to hook my PS4 up to my Saffire Pro 14 so I can have better sound quality on the set up. There is an optical connection on my PS4 and a SPDIF IN/OUT on the back of my saffire.

This focusrite article suggests it can't be done but there is a SPDIF IN on the back of the saffire? [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]

Go out of the mini jack headphone out on one of your controllers to the line in on your interface.
Done.

I have an audio out on the back of my TV which I've used in the past as an RCA, although you might not have that but check in case there is maybe a headphones port also which can come in handy for the same purpose.

Wouldn't using a headphone jack or RCA not have the same sound quality as something else?

Re: Connecting a PS4 to an audio Interface?

Well, it depends on the quality of the DAC I guess. Basically, that's what this is coming down to. Do you want to use the TV's DAC, the Saffire's, or the PS4's? My guess is the Saffire, but you may want to look it up, we could be surprised. If you're going to connect optical audio to spdif, I think you'll need an adapter for the different plug types at least.

And then an optical cable for the run from your ps4 to the adapter and a coax spdif from the adapter to the interface.
