If the deadzone problem is rooted in the game engine's audio mixing, no virtual surround DSP is going to fix that. The sound driver won't receive any more sound from the game just because you ticked virtual surround on. About all I can suggest is to try out the usual Source engine DirectSound3D + ALchemy trick. That will inherently cause CS:GO to mix the audio differently.
I haven't even heard of the 10R until now, much less tried one.It appears to be a drastically different design from the F1 and MA900, too, so it's not going to feel the same in all likeliness.
Sony MDR-MA900. Mad Lust Envy wasn't kidding about that comfort.   The discontinuation means you'll have to keep your eyes peeled to find one under $200, though, let alone $150 like when it was still in production.   Still thinking about parting with mine, but only because this month's gonna be tight.
 Did they ever keep you updated in between? Seems like this was a surprise and they just kinda left you in the dark despite your inquiries.
AOpen already did that back in 2002!
I agree on waiting a bit since it's the eve of the Intel Z97 chipset launch, but I'm not expecting dramatic improvements in sound quality.You want to be guaranteed good sound? Get a sound card, that's the only way to be sure. (Unless you're going mini-ITX, then you won't have the room with a graphics card installed.)Speaking of motherboards, I should do something about that spare Maximus VI Hero board I bought in case something went seriously wrong with my first one. I...
Your system's probably clipping because you EQed above the neutral point. Drop that rightmost LEVEL slider or your overall volume and tell us if the problem stops.
Going back to Realtek? You'd probably be much worse off for it, especially if your board happens to be a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3P. (I have one and know it to be ALC889A-based, alongside having some godawful noisy output if headphone mode is enabled.)   Of course, that would require the X-Fi drivers to play along nicely. I'd start by trying this driver pack.
Well, thanks to a PSN sale and my PS+ discount offering up Tales of Symphonia Chronicles for $10, I went and bought that. Now I own Symphonia twice over and got that much-maligned "sequel" to boot.   Since I didn't really start my GameCube run, I might as well play through this release and put up with the 30 FPS cap...   And yeah, if you have a 3DS grandfathered into the Ambassador Program, you can get Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. Still gotta play that.
 I actually didn't know the Schiit Modi had an optical/Toslink S/PDIF input variant now. The existing USB-only version would not have been ideal. I'll keep that in mind for the future. And, no, there's nothing really weird about that. I prefer separate DAC/amp components anyway so I can mix and match as desired. (I don't use a dedicated DAC, though; when I've already got an X-Fi Titanium HD, there's not much point in it.)  It would be quite fine, except the ODAC isn't...
