When you’re playing to win, you need to see everything, hear everything and act in an instant. To own the game, you need a winning edge. At Gamescom 2016 held from August 17-21 in Cologne, Germany, Sennheiser will unveil the GSX 1000 and GSX 1200 PRO, for competitive gamers seeking to advance to the next level in audio performance. The audio specialist’s new audio amplifiers for PC and Mac are the very first to feature an advanced 7.1 algorithm from Sennheiser that has been developed with the needs of core gamers in mind. It is Surround Sound reborn – the ultimate positional gaming audio, with incredibly precise spatial awareness for the most thrilling immersive experience.

What do you guys think? I would be really interested in giving this a try. I think them using their own surround sound algorithm could be really good and a fresh take on the aging Dolby Headphone, and SBX Pro that are currently out there.

EDIT:
Checked the fact sheets on the 1000 and 1200 Pro. Output specs appear to be the same. Only difference between the 1000 and 1200 Pro appears to be the esports communication hard wired linking feature.

This is quite an interesting product for sure. Curious on what the differences between the 1000 and the 1200 are as well as the price on this thing. I've been thinking about getting a DAC/Amp for the HD598SE's i have but haven't seen anything i felt was worth it quite yet.

The feature to link together for lag free communication is really cool, but is a bit more niche to LAN esports as well as requiring everyone to have this system.

If the price is reasonable, i don't see why i wouldn't pick up one of these.

As far as I can tell the only difference is that the 1200 Pro has the linking ability and the 1000 does not.

Looks interesting. Can't wait to hear more about it!
Senn is one of the those companies that usually does a pretty bang up job too.

“Go then, there are other worlds than these.”

“Every gun makes its own tune... Alive or dead, it's your choice.”

Vin: We deal in lead, friend.
Calvera: So do I. We're in the same business.
Vin: Only as competitors.

Yeah, because a bit of promotional text really determines how good a product is, right? rolleyes.gif

If this has a good DAC/Amp in it, it might be a pretty good product.

I somehow doubt Senn can do good products.

Why is it so hard to put an optical in? This way you could use it for multiple lthings, such as cconsoles too.
