Audio-gd compass or Xonar essence STX - Page 6

I'm in the similar situation and ended up ordering Compass. Deciding factor was not SQ, but that I can take it to work and use it there, while the card is not as portable.

It's definitively a good point...

I've just bought (ebay) the new version of the zero (stock setting) Actually I'm using a laptop and it will take long before I replace it by a desktop. Furthermore, I'm really tight in money at this time and can't afford the compass (I pray for it to last a long time). Since I've never used an dedicated DAC+AMP in my life, I hope that zero along with the HD650 (gift) will be enough to my non-trained ears Ofc, I will not be able to review it or give any SQ comparison, just my modest impression But I'm pretty sure that other more experiment head-fi members will grab one of these to test
