  1. Sometimes we just get the short end of the stick. Just get a replacement from the store. I bet the second one will work flawlessly.

    DT 1770 Pro Faults

    How the heck did it die? I've been using the DT770's since 2015 without a single issue.
  3. It is good to go. You won't need anything else to run those headphones.
  4. I don't really know if the genre (racing) is going to benefit much from ray tracing. Unfortunately NFS has been going downhill for a very long time. They haven't really done anything new. The last iteration was a complete load of bull. You had to earn credits to unlock power-up cards to tune your car, and then it was like a spinning wheel and you didn't know what range your power-up was going to come in. I downloaded a trainer and told EA to f-off basically. And of course you could buy the privilege of spinning the wheel and getting power-ups and cards you don't need or want. Gambling much? Yeah......... that trend needs to stop. Then there's the incremental improvements in graphics, but for some reason my GTX1070 won't be able to play it on high settings even though it will probably use the same engine as the previous title that ran just fine. It's the first NFS title I am not looking forward to
  5. They gotta give you a reason to upgrade to the Stack
  6. I've had the Micca OriGen paired with my 770pro for over three years now. If I had to purchase today, I would go with the Schiit Fulla 2. It's a better package over the original. However, the OriGen has a very nice volume knob. Tough decision.
  7. I second this. I'd give it at least a week.... not sure it's worth the risk.
  8. I can write all day on this, but I will be brief about it. First, YT is 2 channel on PC. Second, there is no native support for multi channel audio on Chrome and Firefox. Third, GTASA does not support a subwoofer channel. I don't know what Vampyr is and it's not on the list from what I can see The greatest list of all time for ppl who want to use their subwoofers Fourth, try your setup with Rocket League if you own it. I don't care if you love it or hate it - it has solid 7.1 support that gets all the speakers going boom boom. Another game highly acclaimed for surround sound audio is both Crysis 2 and Crysis 3 (what a shocker).
  9. Any incentives to the people who actually paid for it?
  10. Heh... that's kind of humorous. Although to the OP's credit, my Onkyo receiver also came with covers over the banana plug terminals. It was an experience the day I found out I can remove them
  11. Those little black things at the end are just covers. You can remove them to install your banana plugs.
  12. So you can "bi-amp" these speakers, meaning you can send the highs/mids to one set of terminals, and the lows to the other set. If your receiver or amplifier doesn't support this, then you just leave the two wires connected as they are on your speakers, and connect your receiver to either the top or bottom terminals and it will all work just fine.
  13. I'll agree to some extent, but it's not critical to add on the center, surrounds, subwoofers, etc. In general two decent speakers are worlds better than a sound bar... the rest can be a perk if you have the space and budget. I wish sound bars would go away they make me sad when people crank up the volume at local stores. The listeners fatigue has got to be unreal on those things.
