  1. Virtual Audio Cable. You may use as many inputs and outputs as you like. If you want to play the same on both the speakers and the headphones, no problem, if you want to play music on the speakers and voip on the headset, no problem
  2. One of these would probably suffice: http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-5mm-Earphone-Headphone-Audio-Splitter-1-Male-to-2-3-4-5-Female-Port-Cables-New-/161174058016?hash=item2586b8f420:g:g54AAOSw9N1VhBF1

    Best Audio Card

    I see! The Asus Xonar range of pci-cards is a safe shot imo. Just find one that suits your needs. They exist in virtually all price ranges, so there will probably be some that will fulfil your needs

    Best Audio Card

    First off, as people already have mentioned, theres no need to buy a soundcard unless your onboard sound is dead or something. As for something external I dare say it makes a huge difference if you have the headphones to follow up. So my tips is as following: First get headphones that are good enough, after that look into an external DAC, then look for a amp. Great headphones + decent DAC is waaaay better than decent headphones + great DAC imo. Personally I have great experience with both "cheap" and more expensive DACs and AMPs. It depends a lot on the rest of the setup. For a suggestion in your price range I have to say the CambridgeAudio DACmagic Plus is excellent, and in combination with a AMP (like DENON PMA-720AE) you will have some of the best audio delivered to your headphones (Just remember that the difference between a lossless file and some 128kb downloaded from youtube will be massively different, so prepare to spend money on music ) Source: Own limited experience, currently using Dacmagic Plus and PMA-720AE together with DENON AH-D7100 headphones
  5. The most frustrating thing? Easy: How difficult it is to get your hands on lossless music from popular artists (without actually buying the CD, or pirating).
  6. Mionix Naos 8200 all the way! It's by far the best mouse I've ever tried Good luck searching!
  7. There's a lot of keycaps on eBay. To get a full set of european style keycaps I'd use WASD keyboards (http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/index.php/products/keycap-set.html) and choose one of the ISO sets, and just customise it in whatever way you'd like Other sites to get individual caps include: http://keypop.bigcartel.com/products (I have good experiences with this site) http://techkeys.us/collections/keys http://www.keycapsdirect.com/index.php http://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/?l=product_list&c=40 https://elitekeyboards.com/products.php?sub=access,cherrymxkeys
  8. I'd have to suggest the Mionix NAOS 8200. It's a beast of a mouse, and by far the best I've ever used (and that is the reason I bought it for myself some two years ago, and it still works and looks just as it did fresh from the box.)
  9. The Xbox One controller acts just like the 360 when in game (so if the game supports the 360 controller it will support the One controller :rolleyes: ). In my opinion the Xbox One controller feels a lot better than the 360 controller (it's newer, so I kinda expect it to be better...), and with the wireless dongle for the one controller there is really no disadvantages to it . (Unless you're on OSX, because then it's a hassle to get it working properly )
  10. Doesn't all phones have a DAC...
  11. Tbh, I would get the Bose Qc25. I know they are over the budget, BUT: They sound better Will probably last longer They will certainly provide you the quietest environment in public. You will probably be more happy in the long run (Sorry for forcing my opinion here, but the way I see it it's far better to buy quality the first time around ) Good luck searching
  12. I'd use it as a living room PC, connected to the TV. Nice small form factor makes it fit right in, instead of a big bulky traditional desktop
  13. Congrats! Hope they are able to drive your headphones pleasurably
