    Thanks for taking the time to test and respond - as it is, this looks like a great value item now (particularly with the free headset in the UK :) )
  2. Lay.
    It is really great value in EU. Free shipping, free headset and 2 year warranty for both. 150€

    My son will get nice headset with Astro MixAmp :ksc75smile:

    The G6 not having a loicense for DTS is a pity. I'll report about the G6 and consoles once it arrived.
    I pondered about a X7 for weeks, this kinda saved me (hopefully), plus it takes less space.

    G5 is what we hoped G6 would be

    I remember us pondering about possible AC3 support for the G5 and contacting Creative about it. Then there was the issue of the worst SBX iteration of all products.
    Most dissapointing Creative product ever.

    The X7 wasn't that far away when it launched. Abysmal auto detection, unstable software and no native support for processing pass-through unless through a work around.
    Some of these things were patched later but I still think it could have been more.
    The G6 could have easily been what we all needed back then. Better later then never though!

    From the looks of it, it's a pre-order bonus in Europe. Creative's US site shows the G6 as available now, so there's no pre-order freebies thrown in.

    Steelseries is now selling its gameDAC solo (no headphone required). Supposedly does DTSHeadphone X 2.0.

    Not going to get me to upgrade from my X7 x Sparkos, but compelling.

    Maybe not selling well enough as a package. Thought the unit was nice when I tried one but sounded poor to me - wonder if the headphones were holding it back? Might try one again with my own headphones now?

    The G6 seems like a nice unit, but for consoles it will require a PC to get the best out of it, then again so does the X7 unless you want to use the mobile app.

    G6LAUNCH for $10 off on the US site. Almost bought a G5 last week.. if only US had a free headphones offer too.

    G6 is very tempting to me as someone who is looking into upgrading my audio setup and positional accuracy for games although I have a question that hopefully you guys can help with.

    I currently have the AKG Q701 which are fairly hard to drive, I don't have a dedicated amp and my sound card is a Sound Blaster Audigy Fx which has a small amp (which is still unable to drive the Q701 to their fullest as I understand) and also provides me with SBX.

    My question is this... Is the SBX from the G6 different/better than the one I currently have? Would the amp on the G6 be better suited to drive my Q701's? Because otherwise I was just going to buy a Schiit Magni 3 and just use the SBX on my sound card.

    G6 offers 7.1 for PC, your current card is 5.1. If that matters.

    Can't speak to the amp section beyond Creative's marketing of it.

    The amp on the g6 I assume has a more powerful amp so if you're not getting enough volume with the sound card then this may be a good upgrade.
  15. Yethal
    It doesn't.
