My Mixamp came in today....I think. Wow, it came with a VEERY long, thick gold plated USB cable. Was that standard on the 2011 Mixamp Pros? That's the best USB cab;e I've seen yet. Even better than the long one I've had for years.
edit: WOW. I just maxed out the volume with the Annie. ZERO hiss.
WTF, Astro? WTF happened?
If you don't want a bulky receiver, and want the lowest noise... find a Mixamp Pro that isn't a 2013 Edition. Of course, it's not without it's downside. The one I have has a very noisy volume pot (like the noisiest I've ever heard on any device ever) when adjusting volume, as well as a noticeable channel imbalance up to about 30% of the volume pot, which is ridiculous.
The seller didn't ever mention this... of course. I'm gonna have to take it up with Ebay, because it's staggering how loud the noise is.
Well, I could just max out the volume and use the voice knob to control volume, it'd work fine, but the resale value...
Still, I would mainly attach it to my Compass 2 anyways, so the volume would stay maxed regardless.
I just can't believe how quiet the Mixamp is. A far cry from the noisy 2013 and 5.8.
