PS4 Audio out? (Analogue)

Can the PS4 output analogue audio? It seems it only has a HDMI or digital audio out.

I know the headsets can output audio via the headphone jack - could a second controller connected via USB be used to output audio even if the other controller is the one being used?

Can Kaz or Vinton check please?

I don't want to buy a TV yet (might as well wait to see the 2014 TV models that will be announced in January) but I might have to cos my monitor only accepts DVI.

Doubt the sound quality is that great from the controller.

Another suggestion might be to get a bluetooth set of headphones - are those supported? It'd just be a case of routing the audio to bluetooth!?

If neither of those things would work then you might have to get a converter.

To be honest Azz, probably best to just get a new TV.

You seem to have a habit of waiting for the next best thing...HDD, TV, etc...surely you just miss out on everything?

For long term non-cutting-edge purchases like TVs and peripherals, I think it's ok to wait a few months so long as you don't need it now. For things like new consoles, phones, Macs - just get when you need/want

Re: PS4 Audio out? (Analogue)

The problem with hooking a second controller up for that purpose would be that it would have to be turned on and signed into an account. I'll try it though.

The easier way is just to use the audio out on whatever display you have the HDMI plugged into. Another method would be to find a cheap audio receiver with optical input. I just looked though, and the cheapest one of those was $200. I did find one with HDMI input for $129 though.

Bluetooth is not yet supported, and may not ever be.

However, USB headsets may be supported soon, just not yet. I use a Sony usb headset myself, and I have it plugged into the controller for now using a headphone cable.

Aha! Here's something that would do exactly what you want.

Long ship time on that, so this one here looks identical as well.

Re: PS4 Audio out? (Analogue)

Hi Guys,

I don't have a home theatre receiver and I wouldn't want to run audio through a TV. So what I do is I would buy a decent dac and run the optical audio into that and then analogue into my stereo amplifier.

Thanks guys, found one here for 12 http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...DE89FW0HAEN5FQ

Wysper - does your TV have audio out? Most TVs do - you could connect that to your amp?
(I am using a 27" Dell monitor which doesn't unfortunately)

Re: PS4 Audio out? (Analogue)

One inaccuracy. The Pulse Audio headset will work... With one of those 4 position analog cables plugged into the controller. Not wirelessly on USB though.
