AKG K702 65th Anniversary Edition - Page 221

post #3301 of 3306

Thanks guys but i'm noop .. i don't know what the heck is "DSP effects" !

 

 

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.

Audioengine D1 ... no DSP effects , but all in one and easely transportable .

 

 

For a gaming purpose DX + Magni 2 (or other amp) , seams to be a better option , even if you don't use dsp effect you can allways turn on or off at your convenience .

Another possible option is Sound Blaster Omni or Sound Blaster Z fed into a Magni. These both use SBX Pro Studio over Dolby Headphone.

Consider getting the OEM version of the card or the Omni, which is the same thing, just external.

I forgot to ask .. what cables do i need to connect Magni 2 to Sound Blaster Z ?

 

2 RCA Male/2 RCA Male  OR ...   2 RCA Male/3.5mm Male ?

 

 

*edit: i see that Soundblaster Z doesn't have rca outputs :(

Do i go with 2 RCA Male/3.5mm Male  or   maybe RCA to Optical Converter ... Aka DAC with Optical input  !?

In relation to the K712, how does the bass compare to the Annie's?
