Astro mixamp question...
Am I better off getting a previous year's Mixamp pro due to lower noise?
Something like http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Free-shipping-NEW-Astro-A40-Gaming-MixAmp-Pro-Only-without-cables-and-headset-/111067806226?pt=AU_Video_Game_Accessories&hash=item19dc283a12&_uhb=1 "new" but without cables $100 inc post
Or just get the 2013 version? For an extra $35 or more with post http://www.gamestate.co/au/astro-mixamp-usb
I don't particularly care about the new EQ mode features etc ( read MLE's rundown on page1). Better SQ is more important. And I like that older models have proper TOSlink input so no need for adapter. And RCA etc.
Also is it possible to input a 3.5mm cable from an mp3 player (thinking my Fiio X3) or laptop and mix music in with game/headphone audio too? Or is that only possible with Ear Force DSS? (but then no mic possible unless using TB headset...)
Sorry if this has been covered earlier like 100pages ago but its a long thread :P
That's a first gen mixamp linked. That one has the lowest noise of all, but it doesn't do USB chat support for PS3/PC.
And yes, all the Mixamps have mp3 cable support, so you can use your own music.
