    I game with an E9 I picked up off MLE. Dolby headphone into the E9 then out to my Q701s using the 1/4" output. Sounds fantastic. I haven't heard the O2 firsthand, but from what people have mentioned with it in another thread (Q701 appreciation) the O2 pairs nicely.

    I like chocolate milk!

    I always get a chuckle when someone randomly recognizes Cheese.
    Also, for any PC gamers Amazon still has about a day and a half left on their Labor Day sale. Some nice games on there that go well with Dolby Headphone.

    What amplifier recommend for Q701? the aforementioned O2? Help!
  7. Phos
    Yeah the O2 should pair great with the Q701.

    So I ordered the DT770 pros. Now I'm stuck. For console Dolby Headphone is the Astro mixamp my only real option?

    First page is your friend... and so is MLE for writing the guide. 
    Mixamp, AX720 Decoder box, DSS/DSS2, Recon, reciever with DH/SC, Headzone amp all have their positives/negatives. Give more information and you'll be rewarded with a better recommendation based on your needs:
    What system are you going to be playing on?
    How important is voice chat?
    How much is your budget?

    Guys, does the Recon 3D USB decode DTS? I can't remember if this was answered.
  11. NamelessPFG
    It does NOT. I tried it myself; all you get is silence.
    You'll have to use the SU-DH1 for any DTS sources.
    Everyone else, prepare for more surround processor reviews! (Too bad one of them is discontinued, and it happens to be the ONLY reasonably-priced one with DTS support.)
  12. Mad Lust Envy Contributor
    Sigh, considering how everything is moving towards DTS, this is unnaceptable that all these NON-Dolby specific devices not decode DTS. That is just STUPID.

    Just a heads up to anyone that wants a cheap solution to get DH on your PC. There's a few of the Plantronics Gamecom 777 usb adapters on ebay from around $9-$15 shipped and it does do DH. I have had the dongle since I bought that headset a couple years ago and works fine (never really used it since I mainly game on consoles).
    Side note: This dongle processes audio to DH only by going from Dolby Pro Logic II -> 5.1 -> Dolby headphone. This is something I just realized when I was reading into it today. This only accepts 2 channel audio and there's no way to set it up to take in a pure 5.1 audio stream. But for the most part, it still works fine when testing this with the 5.1 mix of Gunbuster and setting the output as DPLII with ac3filter.
  14. Mad Lust Envy Contributor
    So basically, it will do the Pro Logic II variant of Dolby Headphone?

    That's... not bad. the PLII version sounds echoey and extra processed in comparison to a DD 5.1 -> DH, but the positional cues are nearly as good, and at times, better than the real thing.

    For that cheap, I'd get it...if I gamed on PC. :D

    Agreed but current (amps) is useful for low impedance headphones as more amperage is required to over come them. In higher impedance headphones you need more voltage to overcome the resistance. (ohms) I'm sure you knew this but my problem here in lies that the 701 genre or family is really neither low ohm (32 and below) and high ohm (100+). So finding a willing source maybe difficult. One that has a high voltage and fast current if you will. A powerhouse of an amp.
