Could anyone post their audio settings for the Xonar U3 interface?

Been using an older version with an older UI and the settings didn't really allow much adjusting.

Now with the software updated, it's the new one with different DH modes and multiple channels settings, etc,,,

I remember people have been using the DH mode 2 with 8 channels toggled I think but if anyone can post it again for the last time here, that'd be awesome.

Thanks!

Can you plug the chat audio into the Astro from the PS4 controller like an Xbox, or do you have to scour the net for one of those pre-2013 USB cables?

Side note, I'm pretty sure this second Recon3D USB (the one you heard) sounds different than my first one... though I don't know why. Even with the same settings, it sounds more stereo-y than surround, and I prefer the DSS. But my old one (which I sold) was easily preferred over this same DSS. I've been testing it a lot (with CoD Ghosts, CoD4, and Reach mostly), trying to hear if it was just something about my ear health or which headphone I'm using, but I hear surround better with the DSS right now with either AKG headphone. It's just weird to me... but then, I think you felt that the built-in THX that came with your laptop had a better surround effect than you remembered when you borrowed this Recon3D USB.

I purchased the 5.8 mixamp + a30's from the Microsoft Store. It came with the PS3/PC chat cable. I don't know if I got lucky or not but I've read that Astro eventually did include them. The only cable I have connected is my V-MODA BoomPro that goes from my X1 headphones to the wireless RX. I clip the RX to my pants so it's never in the way. For $109.99, I think it's a steal. You won't be able to find them for that price for much longer and I haven't heard about any other wireless options that are compatible with any headphones or headsets.

I can't tell you how many times that exact thinking has stopped me from making a purchase. Be it audio or other, when you step back and think about why you'd be buying it and the only reason is "I want it" then it's usually best to hold off. But sometimes you just REALLY want something. That's how I ended up with the HD650s and a few other items.

I"m sure the 220 is better.  Is the one wire going to the wireless mixamp really too much?

~~Hey, I wanted to ask you, if I have the DT990 600ohms headphones and I have the Xonar Phoebus, I want to use the Dolby headphones surround and it is Enabled on the DHTv4 menu.

 

 

1. How can I use it for games, do I need to select 7.1 in-game menu Stereo or Headphones ?

 

2. For example BF4 , Hi-Fi and Surround, is that the correct settings, or Hi-Fi Stereo ?

 

3. In movies, how is it possible to get surround in PotPlayer , PowerDVD13 and arcsoft Therater .

post #20606 of 37364

so... any one ever try gaming the the HE 4? I know the Dt 990 was a decent gaming phone...

I caved biggrin.gif
Something that seems to be happening more often lately... Gonna have to sell off excess stuff. But now, I've got the A30 bundle on the way! I really care about the wireless Mixamp, but I'm mildly curious about the A30 comfort too. Didn't Mad prefer the A30 frequency curve over the A40 anyway?
