Your bag look big enough to hold a baby, let alone some cans. The good thing about Denons is that they can be powered well off anything.

Hey, mad lust envy

Have you tried or read reviews on the hifi 780 s?
post #4173 of 37463

has any heard of reviews on the hifi 780s for gaming or has used them?

So I've been getting mixed signals about the Astro Mixamp and I figured this would be the best place to get it cleared up. I'm reading some places that it can only process DH through optical and the USB is for power, but I'm seeing other places that are claiming that the USB can be used solo to give out DH. I'm looking for something to go along with my laptop and while I do have an optical out, it'd be 1 less cable to carry and a tad easier to work with if it can run solely off USB. The optical on it is nice if I ever decide to connect it to a console but the main use will be on my laptop.

Stereo only through usb

Its even on their site somewhere. USB is stereo only, as mentioned above.

Gladzilla: no.

Confusion may have arisen due to an old, pre-2010 MixAmp, and then the new (current) MixAmp.

I have the old one. One of the differences is that the pre-2010 MixAmp cannot transmit voice over USB for PC setups. Wouldn't surprise me if there were similar limitations on surround sound.

Same with the Pro 900s, first game to make me just sit there and go... HOLY SH*T

 

The noise these things made when the reapers first hit... omg.

 

Might buy it for the sound alone.

I'm in a serious predicament for Mass Effect 3. I played both console versions of the demo, and was very disappointed with how shoddy the game ran on the PS3.


My problem is that all of my ME2 data is on the PS3, so its either dealing with the craptastic PS3 version and keep my data, or start fresh on the 360.

All I care about is that if I start fresh, the previous game's characters aren't compromised, as well as mention of all DLC IF they are mentioned with a full ME2 file.

I do prefer it on the 360 for various reasons, but my ME2 data was on my ex's 360...not mine.

That said, it IS only a demo, but I'm skeptical about the issue being fixed so close to release day. The 360's demo version was fine.

Google "mass effect 2 save editor xbox"

 

I haven't used/tried this yet because I've never played any of the Mass Effect games but I heard this method mentioned in a podcast.

post #4181 of 37463

I am seriously debating playing through Mass Effect 2 again. I started fresh in 2 (a couple of times) due to red rings. I have finished the game a couple of times but my rolled over characters are no where near the end of the game. Really enjoying the engineer/adept/sentinel in the multiplayer.

 

As far as sound on the Beyers the death beams from the juggernauts is insanely deep and loud. But Biotic explosions in MP as an Adept :) a ton of mid bass. So much in fact I had to switch the HD598s because it I couldn't take it anymore. (Main volume 1o'clock, voice 2o'clock.)

I lent my brother the Beyers this weekend to use with his Tritton setup and he gave them back an hour later. "I can't hear a damn thing with all that bass" were his words.

Of course standing by my brother with him cracking off sniper shots on the HD598 is also amazing. First time he did it, it literally scared the crap out of me. Now no matter where he is on the map I can find him if he has a sniper rifle. We have both put in about 17 hours in the MP now. LOVE IT!

just ordered the srh840, good buy or not 

post #4183 of 37463

The Mass Effect save editor works well. I have a friend playing now and he skipped ME1 but still wanted to choose how the story ended up and he's been loving ME2.

 

And returning to my earlier question, so since the Mixamp only handles stereo over USB then that would make it in the same category as the U1 and U3 from Asus, correct?

Creative's Recon3D can do everything over USB on PC.  Even if your laptop has S/PDIF there's no guarantee it can encode Dolby.

I did mention that the DT990 Pro has a bit too much midbass, which is why I returned it...
