I have the K702 running from my Xonar U7. It is a very good combination. From the K702 I get the comfort for long gaming or movie sessions and the good positional queues, from the Xonar U7 I get the Dolby headphone implementation to make the sound immerse me. And both are also very good for music from the PC. And I only use ITunes 320 VBR.
nice, so running without an amp?
was it you that posted before saying you'd tried the u3 and found the u7 headphone output a lot better?
I think what i'm going to do is buy everything, and test it out for a week or two, then return what I don't want to amazon
so going to try:
edit: add fiio e17 to that list too
my ideal solutions:
1) the u7 sounds just fine without the amp so I can return the e12 and the u3- cheapest and neatest (one box) solution, still doesn't solve my osx problem though
2) the recon with the e12 sounds great and has native mac drivers (2 box solution)
3) e17 used as dac and amp, no dolby headphone (one box solution)
is there no way to use the xonar software to process the audio, but output it over another device? So connect the e17 and the u3, but just send the DH coded digital information into the e17 dac/amp?
