    So I am about to head out to a bar, so I am going to leave you guys with just a tease. Package arrived today, as it was planned. When I saw it, I laughed, because he actually addressed himself as Cyanotical, and me as Deltrus. Obviously still put addresses there, but boy, that shit is good, hilarious bro! Also, the newspaper he used to wrap the item... priceless. Thanks for the article on the diapers and shit dude! And yes - I am very physical and very affectionate, duh! lololol (read yellow box on newspaper)

    Asetek don't make the H100i I think. They're responsible for the small "circle" shaped ones I believe.

    I've not yet made up my mind, but I am pretty set on buying the Schiit Modi DAC and Asgard 2 AMP. The DAC will of course, convert the digital signal from my PC to analog and then wire it into the AMP. I will use the AMP for both my studio monitors and headphones, thus negating the need to continue having the ASUS Xonar DX in my computer, yay!

    Though most don't realize it at first, the Audio Technica ATH-AD700 headphones may be 32 Ohms, but they do need an amp to perform their best. The Shure SRH440s need 44 Ohms, so I've definitely not been using those at their best potential performance, either.

    Seeing how I've never liked screwing with EQ and always liked a flat sound, Schiit will be the best route for me.

    I just need to get myself mentally to the point of being okay with the fact that my DAC+AMP will cost more than my headphones and studio monitors. >_>

    Two $100 headphones sets and a $250 pair of Presonus Eris E5 monitors versus a $368 DAC+AMP setup. =X

    That insinuates there is no benefit to such sound hardware... is that really what you think? Just what sound setup do you use?

    - - - Updated - - -

    To be fair, any gaming PC is money down the drain - this is all just about getting the best experience. Audio, visual, everything counts. Even down to buying a mechanical keyboard for $100 as opposed to a rubber-dome for $40. A nice mouse with more buttons for $80 rather than a regular one for $20.

    See what I mean?

    See if it accepts the files after installing both 32- and 64-bit versions of this: http://sourceforge.net/projects/x264vfw/files/

    When looking at the file properties in Vegas, it says that there is no video stream. Even though there is, because I can load the video in WMP and watch it.

    Yes, Vegas is picky about the codecs. If all else fails, convert it before editing (preferably to something lossless).

    Ah, drives me nuts. Sometimes if I record a long portion of, for instance, Skyrim, with Fraps, and then render it as maybe a 40 minute long video, WMP/YouTube simply won't play it. -.-

    No reason that I can figure out, just too long, I imagine. For some video lengths, lowering the bitrate a little bit has helped, but then it can get pixelated, so I have taken to just break them up into shorter videos, which is even more time-consuming, thus I am starting to lose my morale for it.

    Oh yeah, saw that, I'm thinking I may have to upgrade just so I can say my Processor is from "Devil's Canyon"... XD
