  That was actually going to be my next question. I found this:   "But yes, the ST/STX will pass through 5.1 Dolby/DTS signals over SPDIF"   However, most seem to think it's a waste to use spdif out with a card like the Xonar Essence since you circumvent the powered amp, and there's no way to tweak using opamps.

Even using my mediocre headphones it's a vast improvement. 
  Haha! Thank you 
  I agree completely :)
  I just looked it up on wikipedia: lol. 
  Hmm, I suppose one could do that :) hadn't thought of a method so deceptive! But in any case, here's a different shot... with green rubberbands! ^_^ I hope to be upgrading the setup with a pair of HE-400's soon.    
  Haha, this really blows my mind :) Consider this: If it's possible to snap a picture with a good camera such that it seems to be "photoshopped", that should say something about our perception of images in terms of lightstage and depth. In this case, I think we're victims of bad lighting choices (flash & natural light = weird shadows, + bad focus. I'm a crappy photographer, what can i say) and the resolution of the image being too high. It's quite interesting.   I'll...
