Surround Sound PS3 Gaming solution - Page 4

post #46 of 53

"to be honest BC2 has so much background noise going on maybe I am get less accurate 3d positioning due to noise pollution."

 

very true, BC2 has an enormous amount of background audio going on ... but its some of the most robust/detailed audio i have heard in any pc/video game  ....

 

for the OPs budget, i would look at the AD700s. otherwise if bass is a requirement, maybe the DT770 pro,/ 80ohms.

Yeah. BC2 sounds awesome, but doesn't really allow for great directional cues because there is so much going on.

Yea, DT770 Pro/80 would work... I spotted some in the FS section recently.

would the fiio e7 be acceptable for ps3 gaming?

 

i need good 3d positioning and directional cues in fps games...i also need natural immersion in rpgs, action and adventure games

No. It's just an amp/dac. What you need is an actual gaming amp:

 

1. Astro Mixamp $130 - the most well known virtual surround amp. Has the most options and versatility.

 

2. Tritton AX720 $130 - Very similar to the Mixamp AND brings a headset with it. This may be all you need for console gaming. I'd say it has 95% the performance of the Mixamp, from what I gather online. Had i known about these, I would've skipped getting the Astro A40 + Mixamp combo, though the Astro setup is probably the best out, though the headset was mediocre IMHO.

 

3. Turtle Beach Ear Force DSS $80 - the cheapest and easiest way to virtual surround, but lacks voice chat...

Personally I think the A40 headset sounded better on the Tritton Ax720 decoder box than it did on the MixAmp.

 

I feel like a complete idiot because I thought with the A40/Tritton Ax720 combo I lost the chat functionality on the PS3 but really its because I didnt plug in the extra USB connection and change the mic options on the PS3. Now its definitely an awesome combo and I may not need to sell the Ax720s to get the PX21/DSS setup like I was planning to.

Tried  halo ODST with mixamp + audiotechnica A700, VERY impressed,i found that  perfect dark XBLA on the other hand needed everything set  to 2.0, i think that's the same  case  with every other older game that does not support 5.1 digital. 

 

Now what about x-fi and wii,  can somebody  give me some guidance ?  On the  wii i just use the piggy back  rca cable, select surround instead of stereo   through the system menu  and  press the dolby  headphone button on the  mixamp,  right ?  ( i've borrowed it to  a friend for a few  weeks  so  i can't  test myself ) 

 

Would somebody with an  x-fi  give me his exact settings  for feeding the mixamp  with  digital  5.1 ?   i can't get any sound at all :S
