Incredible X-Fi mod *WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY*, 56K WARNING - Page 25

post #241 of 979
yea, they are for sure NOT the best cones for any sort of mid...

look at this auction

I am going to see if I can get them cheap... you never know... there are two past auctions with these and they went for $300 and $360

if I can get them for $250 I am in... it is a shame that I'll still need monitors after I get these... a real shame... but if I am going to spend only $300 I might as well get the product that can be purchased with "only" $300... monitors are more like $800

then I'll try to mess with the logitech's internals

This mod is extremely good for music and gamers alike, infact I just placed an order for a mod with soloz2, but if you are mostly a gamer you reach a ceiling fairly quickly in sound quality when it comes to what kind of headphones or speakers you need considering games used compressed audio, a $150.00-$200.00 pair of headphones is all it will take to reach that maximum.

I was talking to a guy today who does alot of gaming and sells headphones from $50.00 to $3000 (probably more) and he said there is little gain when talking just games.

Music is obviously a whole new story, the skys the limit really when it comes to choosing the best speakers or headphones.

soloz2>> I'm interested in having the mods done to my X-Fi. I'm currently living in the UK. How much to get one done up?
post #245 of 979

I called logitech and when I asked for the schematics the dude freaked out like I was trying to steal their cookie recipe... rofl... I told him that too, hahaha..
sux we can't just get them easily like that though...

Pffft Just buy a nice Harmon Kardon AVR-xxx and some Definitive StudioMonitor 450s like me & your set. Receiver is only like $400 & speakers are ~$325 a pop, but you get a kicken sound system.

Just in case you guys wanna get the Gigaworks G500, its sub (housed the amp) back plate is VERY hot even at idle. It'd probably raise your room temp by 10 deg F ~, 4 deg C. :|

with that kind of money I'd get a single pair of pro monitors but if you want to buy that set up for me I'll be happy to accept

lol! I know that walk, Klipsch won't even sell parts for their promedia amps either, much less sell the schematics, they even told one of my customers that without a schematic nobody could fix their amps, ha,ha, proved them wrong like 160 times already in 5 months...
