# Imac + Akg 701 + Modmic Question

Hello everyone.

I have an Imac late 2012 + AKG 701, and I listen to a lot of music, but I also see a lot of movies and play a lot of fps games.

Im not satisfied with the built in microphone of the Imac and im going to purchase a modmic.

My question is, a simple and cheap usb adapter for the mic will not ruin it's quality?

I have been thinking to get an external dac/amp for the AKG701 for some time now, so I could have better sound. Is there any combo that also have mic input so I could connect the modmic to it?

The microphone will be mainly for gaming chat and Skype, no recording.

I have seen some devices like creative XFI HD \\ Mixamp Pro \\ Xonar u3 u7 \\ etc etc... that would allow me to connect the headphones and mic through USB and also get Virtual surround, that people says it's good for gaming. So I don't know if another option could be getting one of this devices so I could have dolby headphone and mic input, and then connect it to another and better DAC/AMP, so I could have better sound quality.

Thanks
