Well, since MS announced that they're not going to have virtual surround through the controller in the Titanfall patch, I'm considering running a long cable across the room to my AVR for DH. Should I be worried about sound degradation if I get a 15' extension cable from Monoprice?
This will be used to run my (incoming) X1's through my HK AVR340. Alternatively, I was thinking about grabbing a wireless Mixamp, but I strongly suspect the wireless will degrade sound quality more than a long cable. Also it's like $100 more.
On a side note, if this works out well, I may buy a Q701 to see how it compares to the X1. Since I'll be running it through my AVR, the Q's need amplification shouldn't be a problem. I'd then sell off the one I like less.
I have a Marantz AVR with DH and use long cable runs. I have 3 monoprice "designed for mobile" cables; a 10' M/M, a 6' F/M ext, and a 12' F/M ext. I've used both extension lengths on the X1 and the Annies and haven't noticed any difference in quality. I remember asking about cable length when I got my AVR last year and I believe MLE told me the increase in length shouldn't be a problem.
Hope that helps!
