I finished the gaming pc again. What interface people around here use for game chat? Built in sounds pretty lame. Aug 16, 2018 at 8:57 AM

        I’ve been just using a cheap xlr to usb cable, but I’ve been eyeing the Tascam 2x2 for a while, from what I’ve read it’s the best 1 or 2 input usb pre for mics

        I meant to asking about chatting during gaming with the V-Moda boom mic. Good idea with the USB mic.

      James Gunn fired.Yeah, he said some dumb stuff, but this seems hypocritical from Disney. Surely they must have known?

        My point was that this has been publicly discussed before he got hired for GOTG.

        Read about this. Disney might regret this. It is not as if he went full Walt Disney (now he was scandalous!). Either way the MCU might suffer from this one...

        @Poleepkwa, I don't disagree. But the climate is steadily changing, and big corporations (and small, and individuals) are struggling to get ahead of the curve.

      Sony WH1000X. Impressions on SQ is too rare. I am gonna say it aloud... I miss Tyll and I miss Lachlan.

        Yep what @AdvanTech said. I quite like my MDR1000x for plane/train use, but they're not the last word in fidelity. Noise cancelling is impressive though. For a flight earlier this week I just used them in noise cancelling mode with nothing playing, on top of some nice iems playing tunes :-). Worked a treat.

        I tried it in a shop. SQ was ok. The M50X next to it sounded a lot more “correct” though...

        Yeah. It doesn’t compete with proper headphones, but none of those noise cancelling phones do.

      Sooooo tempted by the HD58X. My HD650 reckons I should probably buy some new pads instead.

      The Hypex UCD400 is simply the best sounding DIY amp I have built. True, it is also the only DIY poweramp I have built.

      Modding cases for some Hypex UCD monoblocks. I had no idea that aluminu(i)m is this soft. It’s really easy to mark the surface!

      ATH R70X looks like an interesting design. Reception around here seems to be lukewarm though.

        Because ath tend to be flawed.

        The 3d wing system makes assumptions about head width (they don't swivel) the m70x is piercingly bright. Ready to be proven wrong, mind.

        It's a high impedance headphone too. I'm curious what it sounds like with the Crack.

        Lachlan liked it. Hands thought it better than Fidelio X2. Purrin seems to have liked it. I have the HD650, not sure if this is really that different, considering most think the HD650 the better headphone.

      MiniDSP 2xHD has max output voltage of 2VRMS. Crown XLS has input sensitivity of 0.775V or 1.4V? Which one is the correct setting?
      1. purr1n
        purr1n
        1.4V. Think of it as gain. If 1.4V doesn't give you enough gain, or 0.775 too much gain (hence noise), then use the other one.

        Thanks. It's was hissing on my speakers with the 0.775V. Noisefloor quite a bit lower with 1.4V so I stick with that.

      My Galaxy Note 4 died. Prices have gotten silly since the last time...not to mention the lack of headphone jacks.

        Essential has issues with its radios and signal. Overlooking a camera is one thing, having a phone that doesn't work, drops calls and signal is a completely different matter. I may look at essential when they come out with whatever is next but I would skip this current iteration, unless the radio issues have been resolved.

        My friend never complains of such issues. Doesn't mean they may or may not exist.

        Anyway... One plus 6 launch was just announced. Middle of May.

        Mr Mobile brought it up in his review of the phone and Ive seen it mentioned a few other times. It could have been fixed I haven't looked at phones since I got my Note 8. I am interested in the OP6, but I would like a good camera, Kids, so I will be waiting to see if its new or the same as what was in the 5T.
