Astro Mixamp was the best purchase I've made in a long time.

Ok, enough of these topics. You have a Mixamp, congrats. No one cares.

I bought the A40+Mixamp setup a few days ago after my old headphones crapped out.

Where did you buy it, and how much was it?

I'm planning to buy some quality headphones soon.

Can someone explain to me the purpose of a mixamp and what the benefits are?

Been kinda curious for a while now.

Bought it direct from Astro.

Mixamp does a few things:

- Gives 5.1 DDSS.
- Allows you to easily mix Voice/Game volume levels.
- Easily gives you master volume levels.
- Lets you connect a single headset, of any kind, to, if you want to, a variety of consoles and PC/Macs.
- Daisy chaining mixamps to create a closed loop (Big seller to me).

You can also plug in your MP3 player, or any input you want to also mix in over the game sound and voice sound. So instead of custom soundtracks (actually I start a custom soundtrack and pause it to take out the music from the game automatically and easily) you can just plug in your Ipod with a 3.5mm line in patch cable (included with mixamp). Even has RCA inputs too, depending on the model mixamp you get.

But the main reason to have it is so that you can get the Dolby Headphone surround sound with either the Astro A40 headphones or any headphones you want to use. I use A40, or else I use the Sennheiser HD595. Thinking about getting the PC360 to use with the mixamp.

The Astro forums are extremely helpful and friendly, with regular people posting and with responses from the company. Also you can find a lot of info and reviews and comparisons on Youtube.

How do you set them up? Do you need anything additional other than what it comes with? Can you have it setup to work with both the pc and the 360 at the same time (well switch between them, but not have to manually move the mixamp from one device to the other)?
