ASTRO - MIXAMP 5.8
The ASTRO MixAmp 5.8 easily turns any wired headset into an amazing wireless surround sound experience. Just connect your headset to the Receiver (RX) unit, kick back and enjoy 7.1 channel Dolby® Surround Sound via a secure 5.8GHz wireless connection. Featuring Point-to-Multipoint (PtMP) pairing and fully compatible with the Xbox 360 and the PS3, the MixAmp 5.8 can support up to four simultaneous users depending on your configuration.
The MixAmp 5.8 retains many of the features of the original award-winning ASTRO MixAmp, including game/voice balance control and Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound (TOSlink optical only), all packed into a compact wireless form factor. Operating at the 5.8GHz frequency, the MixAmp 5.8 is all but immune to any “noise” or interference from other wireless devices. The new MixAmp 5.8 also features a Bass Expander mode – which injects a subtle subwoofer effect into the soundstage. With all of these features the ASTRO MixAmp 5.8 is the ultimate home audio solution for gamers.
