I was wondering if anyone has been able to find out whether the PS5 is USB Audio Class 2 compliant. When I asked Sony a few weeks ago, they basically told me to wait for the official specs. Well, those specs are out now, and are silent on this issue.
Let me describe what I am talking about: Basically 99% of Digital Audio Converters (DACs) are UAC2 compliant. The PS4 Slim was only UAC1 compliant and did not work with most current DACs except the ancient ones that were UAC1.
Considering the fact that Sony eliminated the Optical port and the fact that most audio DACs do not have HDMI inputs/outputs, it would be fantastic if the PS5 was UAC2 compliant so we can use our own DACs and amplifiers and not rely on HDMI audio extractors to get the signal to our headphone and speaker amps.
I'm also looking at the best way of connecting a DAC headphone amplifier to the ps5.
