  1. Did you try both HDMI and DP? Maybe audio driver disabled in Windows Sound panel due to Nvidia driver update?
  2. Unplugging the power fixes the DTS. Thank you!
  3. You either didn't use the search function or my topic about the same problem doesn't come up in the search results However the solution to your problem is a 3$ USB sound card that can be easily find on eBay. If you find my topic you'll find the link of the one I bought. Otherwise you can buy the USB soundcard that AntLion sells on their website, which is the basic USB sound card you can find on eBay (usually rebranded by Syba) but rebranded with AntLion logo.
  4. Are you using Cortana? It has the bad habit to change your mic volume.
  5. This projector is damn awesome! Just imagine the amazing evenings with friends playing Super Smash Bros or... whatever And you can fit in indoor without needing pedestals or ceiling mounts, which is the feature that really attracts me.

  7. That would be an awesome media center for my living room TV and also a perfect compact PC to stream games to (from my main station)
  8. A friend of mine has the Zalman MIC-1 as you but he has no static. I guess that you are using the "mic boost" feature activated and that causes a lot of white noise. Disable it and check if the volume is high enough. If not, you can buy a cheap 3 dollar USB sound card on eBay and it will give a high volume on your mic without adding much/any noise. I had the same issue as yours but with ModMic 4 and I solved it this way PS: Obviously use the cheapo card just for the mic, it is absolutely trash for headphones.
  9. I personally like the mousepad. It seems very simple yet elegant. Oh, and the mouse gives that feel too. I find the keyboard a bit too simplistic and the wood on the headphones kinda out of place.
  10. The back camera quality!! 4K videos, so many pixels!!
  11. Afaik you need an adapter to hook the ModMic to Core 1. The Core 1 input has both XLR and 6,3mm jack so you need something that goes from 3,5 to 6,3. Anyway, if you get a mic pre-amp then you don't Core 1 anymore. We are looking for stuff like Core 1 just because we need more power on ModMic, right?
  12. Yea, I hope it too. However the cheapo sound card surprises me again!! The best 3 euro I've ever spent on eBay!!
  13. Okay, the product arrived today in less than 24 hours!! I unboxed it, installed the driver and I'm absolutely.... disappointed Ok, let's start from a physical tour (I feel like Linus now ): The product is well constructed. It is mostly metal with just the lower face being in plastic. The volume knob has a nice clicky motion and there is a blue light ring around it when the card is turned on, nice touch. The box contains the CD diver (useless, downloaded from website), 1x 3.5mm jack to RCA adapter, 1x 3.5mm jack (male) to RCA cable, 1x USB cable, 2x optical cables. Very good content for a product in this price range. And here is where good things end. 1) The very first problem is the software: it likes to crash. Sometimes it works flawlessly, you use the product, then you go to change a setting and boom: crashed. You have to unplug and plug again the product for make it work again. This product is not new and the drivers are not at their first version, so there is no excuses for this behaviour. You can set it to work on USB1 audio (as a normal USB plug&play sound card) but you sacrifice all software features. 2) The listening experience is not that bad though. The volume can go really high on my HD558 headphones and the quality seems reasonable. I haven't done deep testing in listening because of the main problem of this product... 3) the microphone. It is exactly the same sh*t as onboard chip. Except it has a bit lower max volume. So much static noise, unbelievable. These are recordings made with each card: onboard, cheap 3 euro USB and Terratec Xfire (links to SoundCloud below) Realteak ALC898 (volume 100/100, boost +20dB/30dB) Cheap USB sound card (AGC on, volume 40/100... yea, not even half!) Terratec Aureon Xfire 8.0 HD (AGC on, volume 100/100) Now I'm even more surprised of the high quality of the cheap sound card. The only problem is that if you unplug it, then you will have a hell of a time to make it work again. I don't know what causes this but it's a pain. But unfortunately it is better than a 67 euro product. Shame.
  14. Of course I will! It will arrive on thursday, however I don't know if I will have enough time for testing and posting results (university exam session ongoing )
  15. I ended up buying this for 67 euros, sold and shipped by Amazon. http://terratec.com/details.php?artnr=12002#.VYAsZjDtlBc It seems a good product with many features. In fact the software is nearly identical to the Asus Xonar one, but it also has a mic boost slider, which is absent in Xonar U7 (check the manual PDF of both products). Plus the Terratec's has higher voltage RMS in headphone output (1,6V instead of 1,3), microphone input (1,6V instead of 1,0) and other (1,1V instead of 1,0) compared to Xonar U7. Which should be louder headphones and microphone. The plan is testing both headphones amplification/quality AND microphone amplification/quality. My current onboard audio (Realtek ALC898) is good for output quality but the amplification is at its limit for my headphones (Sennheiser HD558, 50 Ohm impedance). I'm not planning in buying a new pair of headphones anytime soon, but since I have to solve a problem (the mic), let's solve another (future) one too. So the idea is: if both headphone and mic tests are successful, then I will keep it. Otherwise I will send it back, take the refund and test something different, maybe the Xonar U7.
