  1. I'm looking to replace my decade old Logitech USB microphone with a new one, primarily for better sound quality. Looking at the options out there and whats recommended there are three possibilities, all of which seem like good options, 1) Blue Yeti - http://www.bluemic.com/yeti/ Has a very high rating and is generally recommended wherever I look 2) Audio-Technica AT2020 - http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/wired_mics/a0933a662b5ed0e2/ Similarly to the Yeti, it is high rating and is recommended in a number of places 3) Samson C01U or the newer gen ones - http://www.samsontech.com/samson/products/microphones/usb-microphones/c01u/ An older mic, but it comes up in a number of places Of these choices or another one, is there a USB microphone to go with that will last and is easy to use? EDIT: Went with the Blue Yeti as it seemed to be the most recommended among all the sites I looked at. At the time, got it for $130 CDN.
  2. Hey Guys, I recently recieved a CM Sirus 5.1 headset through another website i am a member of and they accidentally sent me two. I was told merry christams keep the second one. Now i don't have any use for this second headset as none of my other rigs have 5.1 audio so i want to sell it or trade it. On OCC i will let it go for $50 or a similarly valued trade. Free shipping lower 48. As far as trades go i have nothing particularly in mind, just want something i will use to replace something i wont, anything really except a headset. My assessment of the headset after using one is: Ergonomics: It is comfortable, if a little heavy, the ear pads are amazingly comfy and warm. Audio: Games: don't really have anything to compare it with, but the mic is decent and the noise cancellation really works. directional sound seems fair, but again i have no reference. Music: DO NOT BUY IF YOU ARE AN AUDIOPHILE, the bass is slightly week but overall it sounds quite good once tuned in correctly. Far better than my desktop speakers (cyber acoustic) and my low end senhieser headphones. Dubstep is not its strong point due to the weak bass but most everything else was more than satisfactory for me. Movies: Again the bass is slightly soft but in general this is where it shines, comfy for long movies, excellent noise cancellation for no distractions, clear mids and highs for voices and effects, and the 5.1 combined with noise cancellation creates an excellent immersive experience. Over all i would say it is perfect for the buget to moderate gamer who wants some higher end features at a reasonable price but does not want to sacrifice comfort or audio enjoyment. I personally love them. I'm sure it would make a great Christmas present for someone. Trades: offer what you got, bottom line is i want something i will use, not to worried about getting my moneys worth as i did not spend anything. Will accept paypall but i would prefer amazon or newegg email gift cards. Protects us both, and no fees.

  4. My question is can I add an 10ft extension cable with out loosing audio quality and If I were to do this this what way would be best? Option 1. Use my Rosewill RHB-320R 7 Ports USB 2.0 Hub with Power Adapter but this also will be powering my Razer Naga 2012 and my Belkin/Razer N52TE Nostromo http://http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182175 Option 2. Use a plain USB 2.0 extender Option 3. Use an USB 2.0 Repeater And if some one could tell me what the difference between an repeater and a powered hub is would be much appreciated. I am looking to order them today to have by Friday so i can get GW2
  5. Hey Fellas, If any of y'all are any good with car stereos, i think some of you are, i could use some advice as i am thoroughly confused. So my buddy gave me an old radio to replace mine that went out back in november(3 months sans radio SUCKS!!) and i wired it up, red wires to red, yellow to yellow and black to black. Nothing, checked all my contacts and my ground, still nothing. So i called up another buddy who has installed stereos for a number of our friends and asked his advice, his advice worked but has left me confused as it contradicts all i though i knew about electronics. What he told me to do was take both yellow wires and both red wires and twist them all together, all four! I was under the impression that one set was positive and the other negative... that being the case shouldn't this splice job have left my radio a smoking wreck? What am i missing here? Does the ground complete the circuit?
