Here are some
cool items to use the INCENTIVE coupon for 20% off:
Wii HDMI adapter
(While this won't make it true 1080P it will upconvert it like you can with DVDs. So it looks sharper. It will also take 480i games and convert them to progressive too. Monoprice failed to mention it but there is a small pin hole button that with a paperclip will change it from 720P to 1080P with the Wii on. It will add some junk to the Wiis trunk so use a light HDMI cable.) ($21.12 after 20%) I got the Wii HDMI adapter which does make games look sharper even older NES games.
These 5.1 speakers are a clone of the Energy Take Classic 5.1s(that usually retail for $400)
$198.96 (after 20% off)
If you want 5.1 surround for a small room
$63.92 (after 20% off)
Cherry MX Black Keyboard http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
I decided to give a Mechanical Keyboard a whirl so I got the from the new years sale which feels great for gaming and typing. Some say the Cherry MX Blacks can cause hand fatigue. I haven't had that issue. You don't have to bottom out the key presses as it's quick to register key presses just by light taps so it's not as audible as some of other switch types. It comes with 4 orange keys if you like to have special WASD keys. It also has Anti-Ghosting, 64 key roll over and so forth. Awesome deal at $56.70 after 45% off.
7.1 Dolby Headset http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
for $59.05 after 45% off. I also got from the new years sale is a solid Headset comes with tons of different connections for about any setup. Except a mini toslink adapter if you need that Monorprice sells those too if you need to add one to your order. If you are looking for a Dolby headset this is worth a whirl. Two things should be known if you decide to use the AMP on PC it will produce a light hiss this is only noticeable in dead silence though and you most likely won't notice while audio is playing through the Headphones. Also with the Amp on if you set the MIC to MVC (let's you hear yourself over the Mic. It has 3 settings Mic on, Mute and MVC) the headset will make a loud pop sound even if turned down all the way again only with the Amp on and MVC is so you can hear yourself just turn the amp off if you need to do a mic test it won't make the pop sound with the Amp off if needing to switch to MVC.
Using the Amp is really a taste preference in my opinion. PC gamers I'd consider maybe a USB sound card with an amp built in and maybe that offers Dolby Digital Live encoding as well.(The built in Amp works well too. Just for PC gaming Dolby Digital Live may produce the best audio experience & many also come with Headphone amps that may add even more than the Headsets built in.) Overall it's pretty solid for PC and Console gamers. Can't beat the sale price either!
When not on sale at regular price this Headset competes with the Sony Pulse Headset which is wireless. I'd say this is still the better deal as wireless usually has to compress the audio to some degree but you'd have to compare both and decide. Plus this comes with all the connections for all your gaming platforms too.
Still running this Headset through the paces. Mic has Auto Gain Control you can turn on in the Windows settings. Unknown on Mac. You can adjust the Headset volume and it has a separate Voice volume for other players. You can use it through USB on PC but have to keep the AMP on and Windows speaker settings can only be set to Stereo and does not accept Dolby Digital.
So you want to use it through Optical connection for Dolby Digital and Analog for virtual surround so you can set the Windows Speaker settings to 5.1 or 7.1 depending on the game so the headset can virtualize it. (Or a sound card that offers Dolby Digital Live encoder to send the audio as Dolby Digital for Optical audio.) It has a switch on the box to select Optical or Analog.
Consoles usually offer Dolby Digital (Optical) or Pro-Logic II (Analog or Optical).
