It may not be 1080p HD, but CRT televisions are sought after by fighting game junkies because they have almost zero input lag. Since Miceblue is playing a fighting game (with a resurrection mod to give an old game new tricks), it stands to reason that's what he's going for.

@Evs - good point, but selling off your children for medical experiments (note the lone teddy bear) to fund your Stax addiction is maybe pushing the envelope a little :smile:

The teddy is Miceblue's fighting coach. Note the blank, emotionless, almost dead smile on its face. That's a sure sign of a disappointed instructor if I ever saw one.

A 480p game also doesn't look so hot on larger displays. XD

But yeah, it's quite the wire mess over there with cables running in every direction.

It's the missing ear that breaks my heart..... are Stax's really that worth it?

Can´t seem to find this one. It´s not the '7.1 Virtual Speaker Shifter' in Xonar Audio Center right?

Beat -- that's the Windows Sound CP - click on the speaker icon / playback on the taskbar.

Oh, trust me, I'm using his term of choice when I say "hates".

Hey, now you've got the right headphones to do SSBB's epic soundtrack justice!

 

(And about the CRT, I actually do know a guy here at the uni game room who lugs a small CRT TV into the room because the LG HDTVs here have terrible input lag and are frequently occupied.

 

Still, nobody should talk smack about CRTs, especially for gaming. My Sony GDM-FW900 curbstomps just about any flat-panel ever made, and it's a decade old!...but that's a professional monitor, not an SDTV.)

If you can afford it? YES. Welcome to mind-blowing clarity.

 

However, the main barrier to entry is the amp side of things. If you've got a good speaker amp handy, like an old integrated receiver, you can get a vintage Stax setup with an SRD-6 or SRD-7 for $300 or less on eBay quite frequently.

Does that kind of input lagg actually matter? Anyway, Stax are well, well worth it if you like the type of sound of 'stats.

If you're looking to do frame perfect moves, yes, it does.

The arcam R dac sounds good for gaming with my sennheiser headset over rca..the sound stage is nice and wide..when the ship beaches on bf4's Paracel Storm the horn sounds good..i got the r dac at a good price because the irdac has just been released..now all I am doing is waiting for sennheiser to bring out a new headset with dolby atmos!

Ah of course under 'Configure'  :) Only annoying thing so far, by upgrading to a proper sound card is that I can´t split the output and change seamlessly to my speakers, now I also have to change to software settings. But I guess I will be using them less anyway now.
