Well, my mixamp just arrived and I'm disappointed with the quality of the cables provided. They look (for lack of a better word) flimsy and low quality. I think I will buy replacement cables. With that said, upon further discussion I'm probably going to keep the mixamp, at least for the time being. I'm not going to buy the Wii U anytime soon so I shouldn't worry too much about a solution for it yet. Besides, with at least a year of usage, I figure this amp will have probably amortized by the time I buy a Wii U.
The mics I bought from dx.com should be arriving next week. Now I just need a pair of headphones, lol.
Mine is an old wired Mixamp. The 3.5 to 3.5 input cable I thought was nice and felt good. I bought my own decent TosLink as it did not come with one. I did wear out the Y splitter cable and had to get another I guess it went in about 18 mo. I have to admit though, for $130, you get Digital or RCA in, Dolby Headphone, voice chat mixer, voice chat chaining, aux input, rechargeable battery for portable, USB charge, multi-platform support, headphone amp out. It's maybe not the highest quality kit from top to bottom but for that price it's fairly impressive if you look at it in that light. It's damn tough to beat. IMO
