Using a mixamp or no?

 

 

Wired mixamp (except original v1 mixamp) just plug a usb cable from the mixamp to PS3.

 

For the wireless mixamp:

Otherwise, I thought something like this worked for generic setups:

I have a smaller TV as well. Check my profile for what I have. It's the best setup possible to me though. Nice! Ha, the picture that I'm rocking is what I have. AKG Q701.

 

 

 

nice nice, I didnt think i would get this involved either. haha i gotta slow it down

Has anyone heard something new about the astro Mixamp pro being sold as a standalone unit soon? Only word i have is a post on Astro's forum from a mod saying early december. I don't want to shell out 249.99 for the whole thing when i already have a pair of AD700,

Nah, a Yamaha RX-A710 receiver. Yeah, I've seen that before. Hopefully it doesn't make the mic sound like crap. I had a cheapy one from Ebay.

Dunno why it's not showing up, but, meeee too. I'm very excited though. This is as best as it gets on the PS3 in terms of console gaming (for me).

I just saw your sig. You're welcome. smily_headphones1.gif

Glad the Q701 is working out so well for you. I really loved them. So much, that I'm contemplating getting the K702 65th Anniversary. For real.

For sure! My mmx 300 will be here Monday, according to tracking. :D Stoked to try em out.

 

But after a long gaming session with the A40's tonight, I am not sure how much better it can get. For competitive play the new a40's do everything i need them to do very well. 

 

I will report back

They were supposed to go on sale by the end of November. Now they are saying by the new year. I would take the estimates with a grain of salt though. It's a big mess over there at Astro. (check their facebook) lol

 

But one of the more respectable mods on the forums said that the new mixamp will be on sale for 129.99 when it does release.

Well that's a shame. I had a PS3 a bit more then a year ago and had to sell it, now im planing on buying a new one to plug in my PC monitor but it has no speakers, so i was hoping the Astro would take care of my sound. Anyone has cheap alternatives in the meantime?

In the meantime? Fiio E5 + RCA female to 3.5mm male cable. Hook up the ps3 composite/component audio cable to the rca female, and the 3.5mm end to the E5, then your headphones to the E5. Should be around $20-25 for everything. I had to get a rca to 6.3mm cable and use a 3.5mm adapter, since Radio Shack didnt have an Rca to 3.5mm cable, and I didnt wanna order the cable online.

Make sure the cable is stereo. Seen some mono ones, so be careful.

To all ps3 gamers who enjoy some shootan', get CoD4! Its cheap as hell nowadays, and if you live in the states, gamestop usually has used copies for like $10.

I wanna shoot your faces!

Hmm, 40 dollars just for shipping? Forget that.
