i recently got the MMX 300 and would like to connect them to a good AMP. The MMX 300 has a microphone so the cable i am using is split at the end and has 2 plugs, one for the audio and one for the microphone.
I believe i have two options now when it comes to AMPs:
1.) An AMP with mic input like Schiit Hel or Mayflower ARK. Problem being that they are hard to get from Europe.
2.) An AMP without mic input. I am not too sure about this but according to ZReviews the 5-pole plug makes it possible to connect the audio plug into a good AMP and the mic plug into the motherboard directly. Link to where he says it in the video: https://youtu.be/ZD3VEPEFP3k?t=491
So i could simply buy a good AMP and run an extension from down my computer to up my desk and connect both plugs there. Problem is that i wasnt able to find anything online (except ZReviews video) that mentions the difference between 4-pole and 5-pole in the way of grounding. Maybe somebody could point me to a good source explaining this?
What would you guys suggest? If you would suggest point 2 (amp wtihout mic input), which AMP would you suggest?
Thanks in advance!
