 USB bypasses sound card features (sorry).What is the make and model of your motherboard? Maybe get something else, beside the computer, to plug the E17K's USB into?Like an AC to USB adapter
 Sound Blaster 2?Do you mean Sound Blaster Play 2?
 Sound quality is fine on the FiiO X1, I was able to demo it for 10 days.I really doubt you could find better audio quality, for it's price range.
 If there is a way to get them to work, besides getting a receiver with pre-outs, which is a waste of money, not sure.Beside your trying to get some nice studio monitors to work with a really low cost sub-woofer, part of me thinks the Polk Audio will hurt (interfere with) the JBL's sound quality.
 FiiO E10K USB-DAC-amp, $76Just plug the mic into the on-board audio's line-input (mic) port.
Return the Polk audio and do not use that external 5.1 sound card. Plug the E10K into the MacBook Pro's USB port. Use a cable like this to connect the E10K to the JBL LSR305. (3.5mm stereo plug to dual 1/4" mono plugs) http://www.amazon.com/Hosa-CMP153-Cable-Inch-Dual/dp/B000068O3C
Monoprice 5" studio monitors, $136, normally $171 http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=115&cp_id=11504&cs_id=1150401&p_id=605500&seq=1&format=2   Creative Labs Sound Blaster Z sound card, $100   So total could be around $250, well under the $300 budget you had for audio.
 wow, never really hear people not liking the HD558 for surround sound gaming?
 You can plug the 50-Ohm HD558 into anything any they will work.Xonar DG or Xonar U3 will easily drive the 50-Ohm HD558.
 The Beyer Dt880 are nicely balanced, but a little on the bright side.The Premium version make more profit for Beyer, then the Pro version.
