Hi guys,Sorry to keep you hanging for so long, it's just that I've been doing a lot
Well I screwed up in my feeble attempt to state my wants.
Will purchase the headphones that Nos told me about, and I do have a PS3
and "PERHAPS" <grin> a mid price Xbox in the near future. My new "shiny I
hope" PC is due to arrive next week.
If I plug in the PS3 and eventually an Xbox into my new Samsung 24" 245T
Monitor I would have no sound from either the PS3 or Xbox.
So the question begs, which(?), a switch box for the three (3) different
inputs with output to the Cambridge amplifier or a separate amplifier to
handle the PS3, Xbox and PC sound to the Cambridge amplifier (?) OR a
amplifier to connect all three (3) inputs to then an inexpensive set of
speakers like the Cambridge woofer and twin desktops I already have/ Oh
Hell, what a cock-up!!!!!!!!!
Anyone make any sense of this 80 year olds attempt to clarify his ideas???
Oh Yes~~~~ and the means of connecting the Headphones Nos and I are
to what ever you can come up with; yet always making the changing of
"inputs" either remote or easily on the desktop.
<SIGH> and thanks,
of thinking about this.
I'm going to break down how I have my stuff hooked up,so this might give
you some ideas OK? Since you want to bring your console into your PC world
and need room for a 360 later, one idea is this. Ditch the Cambridge powered
speakers and buy yourself a small A/V system. I have the Philips MCD 703
Mico System http://salestores.com/philip39.html (this is just so you can see
what it looks like) It comes with two pretty nice speakers and a sub. It
also has a DVD player that will play just about anything you throw at it.
It's a really small system and it has a headphone jack (some Philips models
don't) I use this system for my 27" CRT that I have connected to my PC so I
can watch HULU, online videos and movies streamed from my HD in comfort. (I
have a room of my own in my house away from the family, so I can do what I
want and not bug them) I have a Xbox,VCR(old school), a separated DVD player
and my PC all hooked up to this A/V system. I use a $15 A/V switch box so I
can plug everything into it. The switch box isn't made for HD, it just has
composite and S-Video for video input, no HDMI or component jacks. For my PC
I have the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 system.
Now another thing you could do is buy the ProMedia 2.1 system, why?
Because it has an input jack on one of the speakers right next to the
headphone jack! Now this could be very handy for you because what you could
do is buy a A/V switch box, plug all you stuff into it, and then use a RCA
to mini jack cable to hook up the switch box to the ProMedia system. And you
would have the ProMedia plugged into your PC's soundcard as well. The cable
I'm talking about has left and right RCA plugs on one end a mini jack on
the other. I think this would work great. And believe me the Klipsch
ProMedia 2.1 system sounds very nice and has a lot of power.
Now how are you planning on hooking your PC,PS3 and maybe 360 into your new
monitor? You haven't said anything about this.
Sorry if this is confusing, but that's the way my brain works :) Let me
know if this makes sense to you OK?
