Hello :-)

I recently bought a new TV. I'm using Headphones a lot, and I found the build-in Headphones Jack (3.5mm) awful. When volume is low, I can hear non-stop hissing/static noise. It improves if I turn up the volume. Based on the knowledge I have (and I don't have much), I have two options:

1. Buy an external small amp to control the volume. I can crank the volume up on the TV to get rid of the hissing, and adjust it to the actually volume with the amp. The only problem is the hassle involving with that (playing around with the TV/AMP volume and adjust it.

2. Get an external DAC with Optical In and 3.5 jack out. The Optical out don't have any hissing of course, but I'm worried the DAC won't be able to carry my headphones. I think AMP is needed anyhow.

What do you think? can I just get cheap DAC like the Fii0 E3 and get over with it? or will I also need an AMP? any recommendation about a cheap small DAC + AMP product I can order internationally?
Thank you!
