The jack on the mixamp is a headset jack (mic and headphone in one plug). the other jack is for the xbox controller only. The Y splitter splits the headset jack into a mic jack and headphone jack so you can use a PC headset that has a mic and headphone jack with the mixamp. Additionally you can't use a stereo Y splitter with the mixamp and expect it to split the mic and headphone audio.

Actually Phos, you're wrong. The other connection is the controller input for the 360. Without that cable that goes from the Mixamp to the 360's controller, you don't get voice chat.
There is no need for two inputs, as the A30/A40 have all come with the mic/audio in one line, with a special connector cable that goes to the Mixamp.
You need a Y cable, unless you have an Astro Headset.

Oh the mixamp uses a TRRS?  Strange choice.

Yup. See diagram on page 9: http://qa.astrogaming.com/manuals/MixAmp_manual.pdf

The front of the current MixAmp is still the same as my older version--headset port on left, Xbox controller chat port on right.

guys so where in receiver do I plug in the cable?

 

it has usual ins (AUX1/ AUX2) and some TAPE_OUT.

 

There is no 3.5 Jack IN on receiver, only headphone out.

 

Should I do this:

 

Mixamp --------- headphone_out ----- Jack-to_RCA cable --- Receiver:AUX_IN

            \_____microphone

 

 

??

 

 

Thanks for patience ))

Yes, you need a 3.5mm male to RCA male cable between the Mixamp and Receiver (or 3.5mm male/male + a 3.5mm female to RCA male), and plug it into one of your AUX Ins. Assuming your AUX ins are the typical ReD/White RCA inputs.

Here to help.

Also, when doing this setup, max out the Mixamp's volume (or nearly max it), and control the volume with your receiver.

does the seller of the DX mic ships internationally? or is it a bad choice due to shipping and taxes or a chance of breaking the mic during shipping?

 

not sure if i want to order and forget, then when it arrives it goes directly to the trash bin

DX is based in china and ship worldwide.

It's from China, and I get it here in the US. Not sure where you're from, but for the $3 or so, it's a very low risk, high reward gamble. Regardless of forgetting it or not, it's gonna take a long time for it to reach you, so don't stress about that.

My clip doesn't have the branding on there, unlike the image, but it is the same mic.

Microphones do not project audio, you speak into the mic.
You should be using the headphone cups to hear.


Could be the setting with the PS3 are not set correctly for optical output?

LMFAO!! You smart ass.. lol.. biggrin.gif

I need a desktop amp/dac for my q701s. I play a bit of battlefield but mostly need it for an easy to use volume/eq control next to me while I play movies, games, flight sim, etc. 

 

Here is what I have a selection from:

http://munkonggadget.com/product_150311_th

 

I could order from the US or wherever, but tax and time it takes to ship sucks.

Around a $300 budget or less would be nice.

Does the same theory apply to all amps, such as my O2, or only his receiver?

To all amps.

 

You'll come to the same conclusion by trial and error: if you put your MixAmp at 20%, connect it to an O2, you'll find you have to crank the O2 volume quite high to reach the same decibel level (by estimation, not measurement).

 

It's a more efficient setup to crank the MixAmp high and use the second amp to attenuate.

The Audio-GD Fun should be quite the DAC/AMP for you, assuming you can afford it. It's like my NFB5 with an actual line in. Dunno what the price is converted to US currency.
