So here's a crazy idea ...
AKG K702 Anni ($377) + Sound Blaster Z ($99) + Magni 2 Modi 2 stacking ($218 includ PYST Cables )
OR is it an overkill for gaming ?!
And am i really getting what i'm paying for AKG K702 Anni over AKG Q701 ... for gaming?
From what a few people have said that have tried it, the original Modi wasn't really worth it over using the DAC built into the Z. I don't know how much better the Modi 2 is, but I can't imagine it blowing it away and making it suddenly worth the extra cash.
As for your second question, that depends on entirely too many factors. I will say, the headband alone was enough to convince me that the Anni was worth it. I didn't really want to mess around with installing another one to the Q701 or messing around with any of the various mods.
You might want to ask some questions over on Nameless thread if you haven't already regarding the Modi and Magni vs the Z.
