I mean your apparently close enough to have the toslink connected from the console to the mixamp but the included 5ft USB cord is too short to reach and power your mixamp?
P.S. I'm not sure if I inadvertently come off as critical, I'm just generally curious.
I bought a 25 ft. cable with the headset.
Having previosly dealth with a Tritton set with wires across the floor, it was important to try and hide as much as possible. Where I am using the headset is a smaller room (6 ft. from tv compared to 14 ft. in the other). That setup has a tv with simulated surround that works for most casual games and kid flicks, but I wanted to have some headphones for use later at night, to give a more immersive experience and to drown out the "playing noise" of guitars, drums and the ocassional singer.
HDMI from the X360 to the tv and I'm using the digital out from the TV to the MixAmp. With 25 ft. of cable, it can be run along the wall and around to a side table beside the couch where the MixAmp is handy to make adjustments.
Without a wall wart to keep the unit powered or leprechauns to keep bringing me batteries, I went with the rechargeable and thus, this is where the whole conversation began.
