post #15826 of 37354

Hey MLE, is there any way to use the Fidelio X1 with an xbox 360 without using a mixamp? I pretty much never play console games, but since GTA V still hasn't been announced for PC, I'll have to pick it up for xbox 360 and I'd really rather not spend ~$100 just for one game. I also really don't want to use my $50 turtle beaches lol.

Just for solo play? Shouldn't be hard: x1 into TV headphone jack, or 360 audio into an amp.

Ah, well that's simpler than I thought it would be. Not really sure why I thought that wouldn't work, but thanks.

Or pick up a used DSS for $20 on eBay

Find a used Turtle Beach DSS

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Turtle-Beach-EarForce-DSS-7-1-Surround-Sound-Processor-for-Stereo-Headset-used-/330958996870?pt=US_Video_Game_Headsets&hash=item4d0eb18586

Buy an optical cable to make sure.

There you go.

I'd sell you my mixamp, but I suspect it's not working properly anymore.

In other news:
just got my Plyr 1.

I'm curious or just want new toy, but what would be a decent option for a surround unit for the PC? Just one of those used DSS or pick up a U3?

Not looking for the cream of the crop, just the best value to see if it even matters to me.

You guys running cables from your xbox by the TV to the couch or am I missing something here? That cable run for me is like 15 to 20 feet...

Used DSS into an amp would be good

U3 into an spdif dac and then an amp would be even better. wink.gif

Of course, the used DSS will be a LOT cheaper once it's all said and done, unless you already have an spdif dac.

As fo the DSS, this is assuming your PC has an optical out that supports Dolby Digital. My gaming laptop's spdif out only does 2 channels, so the DSS alone wouldnb't work properly.

You can get the U3 for around $30 (after $10 rebate), and a Fiio D03k (spdif dac) for $30 as well. I assume you already have an amp.

Guys I bought the humble bundle and I'm not going to use these keys, so if you want the game, go ahead and redeem the key - it's free to you.  They only work once, so first to redeem gets it - if you use one, might want to post so others know.  Have fun beerchug.gif

Where is the U3 with the rebate from?
I'll probably give that a try.

Though I try to avoid additional USB anything because possible DPC latency.

Kamakahah: what about a new sound card? Most of the Asus Xonars can do virtual surround--check Nameless's thread.

This is the main reason why I haven't bought it again since I went back to the AEs. It would be nice to have both but I am happy with what I have when including the Mad Dogs.

 

Speaking of closed headphones... how's the M100 been working out for ya?
