LOL!!! I say it doesn't have an amp because i can physically look at the card and see that there is no amp. The DX is a home theater card designed for 7.1, and home theater systems have their own form of amplification. There is no conspiracy, asus is not trying to "scam" you, please do some reading before you start helping others. I have seen you recommending the superlux 668b to almost everyone you meet no matter their needs or budget, people are gonna come back upset and for good reason.
I've been looking over the Xonar DX, do you think some of the op-amps is doing double duty, for both headphones and speakers?
Why would they be upset, I'm trying to save them some money, if a $55 dollar headphone can do a decent job, why spend $200
I believe I all ways had nice things to say about the more expensive headphones, If they do not like my advice, they do not have to listen to it.
Have you even tried the Superlux HD-668B?
