Like I said, inconsistent drivers. You just didn't get a premium DT770 that sounded like the MMX300. They are out there. Again, the MMX300 doesn't just have one sound either.

There have been both bass heavy MMX300 and bass light/balanced.

Spent a bit of time last night playing Borderlands 2 with Evshrug. I have to say that I really enjoy my new combo: Mac>Recon3D>E12>HD650 w/ DX mic. The grouping of those together was excellent. Really fun headphone with a very impressive portable amp. I actually prefer this combo to gaming than when I had the Schiit Vali. Partially because it's portable and partially because I'm coming to realize I prefer SS signatures to tube. That's probably why I like my T1. Sure it has a tube DAC, but the amp is SS.

 

Ev, not once did I have an issue hearing what you were saying with the mic on the monitor. You sounded pretty metallic and hollow. Your voice had more body the first time we played. That said, it didn't sound any worse than some cheap gaming headset mics out there.

Didn't mean to keep us up so late, but much fun was being had!

It's pretty cool the mic was at least clear, since I didn't do any prep we basically had a worst-case scenario for the mic... though they advertise it being a little better.

Also, three words:

Mac Pro.

HNNNNNNNNNGH!

Is using a 3.5MM to RCA adapter to go from a soundcard to a Magni a bad idea?

Yeah, that Mac Pro is a thing of beauty. But since I don't do much video editing any more and my MBP is still excellent with my interface/mic for voice over work I don't see myself getting one any time soon. That said, I can't wait till we get the house and I can once again have a permanent desk location. I want to try my recording setup for gaming again. It was fun to be that over-the-top.

If the sound card can do line out, not at all.

If anyone is looking to buy the Plyr 1, looks like Best Buy has them on sale now for $129...

Hmm, might be a good time to try those puppies out.

Question about the sony MA900... When you are wearing them, if you shake your head back and forth side to side or tilt your chin all the way down, do they move?  I found a pair of them open box in the sony store for $150, but now that I have them at home, I am noticing that they are not staying on my head very well.  Thoughts anyone?  When i look down the back of the pads slide all the way to the back of my ears where they finally stop.

How can you tell them apart without having to audition them first?

I'm gonna be honest, I don't like the new Mac Pro's design for a few reasons:

 

-Those graphics cards sure look proprietary to me...as does everything else in the Mac Pro, actually. Goodbye, upgradability! Hello, planned obsolescence!

-The thermal core idea is interesting, but they cheaped out and used aluminum instead of copper, presumably to keep the weight down. I'd rather have better cooling performance.

 

Then again, as a custom-building PC enthusiast, Apple's direction pretty much goes against everything I stand for, best represented in this huge Corsair 800D tower next to me, crammed with a custom water-cooling loop and carefully picked PC parts. I'd probably rather Hackintosh or try and find an old Mac Pro on the cheap (yeah, right).

 

Speaking of Hackintoshing, that's probably something I could do with my old Q6600 box right now...

I've entertained the idea of making a hackintosh myself, but right now I find my mind drifting towards the notion that building a Steam Machine could be a better use of time.

Anyone have a solution for the Astro Mixamp 5.8 chat cable? I have the mixamp but would like to be able to chat with people on my PC/PS3. I can't seem to find this cable anywhere.

Keep in mind that SteamOS isn't meant to replace a desktop OS. It's meant for the living room.

Exactly. I already have a MBP and it's my main computer. A hackintosh might not get as much dedicated use. But the ability to stream from the MBP to a Steam Machine could be just what I'd need.

 

Granted, buying one is simpler. And that iBuyPower model seems interesting. Can't wait to see more specs.

I have a stupid question. Since I only have an SPDIF out on my PC would these not work for me?
