This review is from: SanDisk Sansa Clip+ 1.0" Black 4GB MP3 Player SDMX18R-004GK-A57
Pros: Works and is small.
Cons: Lacks control. Next one I'll get will support USB 3.0 for faster transfer speed. I had an issue with some corruption causing the player to pause between songs and it takes forever to fix it all.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good quality and tech behind this. I love the mix amp because of the MP3 input. It allows me to use my secondary PC to run music/videos sound into these while I play a game on main PC. The virtual surround is good.
Cons: The mic mute switch on the cord is funky (only works half way). The setup for this thing isn't easy and requires specific hardware/tech to work as intended. I highly recommend to use the splitter cable that comes with it and send your mic into a separate mic input. If you don't the mic goes in through the USB and sounds terrible. They supposedly have a firmware update to fix this, but I haven't tested that yet. Astro doesn't have any software for testing these to see if they work as intended. If you aren't willing to spend some time and trial and error in the setup process I don't recommend these. Also finally I had some issue with the optical cord (it broke "physically" at one end from very little pressure), but it was still functional and Astro sent me a new one free of charge. (new one hasn't broke yet).
Other Thoughts: Don't believe what other people say about the mic quality being bad! The mic is very good, it just needs to be split before the mix amp, read 'cons' for more explanation. (PC gamer, not console gamer).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Xonar DX 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card
Pros: Well I've had no problems, however I haven't used a lot of the features or things it can do. For instance I haven't used it for mic input. I bought it specifically for my Astro A40 headset and it works well for that.
Other Thoughts: Haven't used the mic input - be wary if you plan to and have GPU SLI setup. Apparently some sound cards can pickup interference from GPUs when under heavy load. This is hard or easy to fix based on specific things. So just do some research before hand.READ FULL REVIEW
