By the way antithesis i just tried if the PS5 supports the BT-W2 adapter and it does, the adapter also supports 3D audio so you you dont need an HDMI audio extractor with the X7. Means you can use the extractor for the Xbox then to have both connected at the same time.

Currently the PS5 doesnt support 3D audio over HDMI but only through connected headsets attached either to the controller/console directly or via bluetooth. The BT-W2 falls into the bluetooth category and therefore 3D audio works (which btw is amazing!).

Very nice! I run my consoles through a TOSlink matrix and HDMI audio extractor, but both will need to be upgraded for 120Hz support.

I'm looking forward to your feedback on the PS5. I'm holding off on next-gen consoles until mid-next year, but not by choice. We can't even submit a preorder in Oz until at least January  :-\

Sure man, though im already quite sure that you made the better choice going with the Xbox over the PS5. Xbox is ticking all the boxes this gen while Sony is still busy smashing lots of bugs.
You dont want to know how many bugs i already encountered today, and ive only been using the console for a few hours so far...
Also theres a flowchart on options you should stick to in order to avoid bricking your console, i mean just think about how ridiculous THAT is...

None of that is relevant to casuals though and therefore hardly gets picked up in the media.

You guys beat me to it :) I just found out that my BenQ XL2411Z wonít be able to do 120hz over HDMI. So what do i need to purchase in order for it to work? Do i need a display port adapter or should i just buy a new monitor?

Also od1n, will my turtlebeach dss2 work for the ps5? could someone provide me some information on what i should do, buy a new monitor, buy a displayport adapter?

should i buy the xbox series x instead of ps5? only problem is my games i already have on ps4 like cod cold war that are for ps5 and i have a yearly PS plus sub. iíve always had playstation and do like it.

should i be single strobing on my console/xl2411z? if so, what duty/phase?

I actually havent look into that but i already read quite some comments that HDMI to Displayport cables should work without problems. Buying a new monitor doesnt make any sense right now given that there are no monitors that tick all boxes (4k, low latency, HDR, HDMI 2.1, ...).

For your turtle beach you will need an HDMI audio extractor so you can connect your DSS2 to the adapters optical port, but Sony doesnt support 3D audio over HDMI for now so you might want to explore other options first which for example involve connecting your gear directly to the controller (until better options are available).

Im currently streaming my PS5 audio over bluetooth to get the 3D audio, while bluetooth streaming doesnt have the best bitrate it still sounds miles better (as in more immersive) than listening to the non-3D HDMI audio.

I dont think the xl24 monitors support 120fps over HDMI, you would need an HDMI to Displayport cable for that.

FYI, my HDMI to display port conversion cable doesnít work with the series X

For new XBox Seriex X I recently bought LG UltraGear 27GN950, which has all the required capabilities, such as:
* 120hz with 1440p over HDMI
* 60hz with 4K over HDMI
* fixed, nor the variable rate
* HDR10 and VESA HDR600
* HDMI 2.0 support - you don't need HDMI 2.1 for 120hz+4K as Xbox doesn't support it
* FreeSync Pro support

So I can attest it works well with XBox X
