Don't buy on amazon or other generic brands as there is a well known fault with those that cause the Xbox to reboot if you change inputs. This doesn't have that problem and worked for me until my Xbox crapped out and I bought a slim model with the optical out port.

Does the 3.5 mm to 3.5 mm jack work aswell if you plug it in the Analog in and to your TV?

That will not give you surround, but it will at least give you soud in the meantime. You need that adapter.

What do you mean it will give me sound in the meantime? What does it improve on vs just my headphones stock plugged in the TV?

The DSS will more than likely have a stronger internal amp and lower output imepdance than the headphone jack on the TV. TV headphone jacks tend to use the cheapest parts.

So... I'm kinda annoyed with my DSS. Mostly just a preference thing. I got my new headphones and was testing them out (yes, my New V-MODA M-100), but it's been a little while since I used a detailed headphone with the DSS (the KSC are pretty detailed, but not on the same level as the Q701 or M-100), and the echos were really apparent last night. Not super impressed playing Splinter Cell: Conviction on surround cues either. Add to that, I think the M-100 are more sensitive since they are lower impedance than the Q701, so I have a fair/distracting during gameplay amount of background noise when I connect to my external amps. OI think I'm going to buy back a Recon3D USB... NAmeless, you still got yours for sale?

I do. It's sitting right here, waiting for you.

 

I could use the extra funds to recoup the costs of a major purchase...you'll all see soon.

Just... for moi?

Hope you're enjoying your major purchase... soon! I'll let you know, paycheck Friday. Everybody's happy then, right?

BTW I don't think the DSS is bad, it's just for my ears, I'm not satisfied. Still wish Creative would just make a Soundblaster Z USB.

if your getting alot of background noise have you tried using an isolator of some kind? should clean it right up.

Just got my xonar dg yesterday. Can someone share best dolby headphones settings for using with CAL! ?

I already know how it works. just use 8 channel setting, 44.1khz (no more is needed), turn on dolby headphone. Do i want virtual speaker shifter ? What dh is best for games and what for music ?

dolby headphone comes off as a gimmick to me. closing my eyes while listening to sounds in-game, sounds still sounded either left or right with headphones (AD700 + Xonar DG).

It might be your ears differing a lot from the average. It helps IMO.

 

Anywayz, I need a recommendation. Here's some different options for me.

 

  1. I have a PCI slot free and I do also have a PCI-e slot for my wifi card (whatever it's called), but I could buy a PCI wifi card if necessary. So, I need a sound card with coax out and dolby or cmss-3d.
  2. Some external sound card or the like that preferably work with both my pc and ps3. I would like it to have coax out too. 
  3. Plain and simple usb to coax converter

 

My situation is like this: I have a ps3 with optical out, my pc with optical out. My DAC has a coax and an optical input. I want both ps3 and pc connected to the DAC at the same time. I would like to have some virtual surround sound now that I need a device for getting coax out of either my pc or ps3 anyway. It shouldn't necessarily cost me much more I guess, so why  not?

 

You can apply surround sound dsp's and stuff when you are going digital out of a soundcard, right?

That is something we would all like!
Not sure if such device exists honestly.... Other than the ones mentioned before

I am not sure on it too as of yet.

I know that 2ch + hf in xonar control panel is purest mode. No eq, no surround etc. best for music.

 

Tried playing couple of games like Saints Row The Third which support DTS but I have mixed results.

 

6ch, 8ch - I see no difference. At least I think

dolby headphone dh1/2/3 - 1 is to narrow, 2 seems about ok but it does lil reverb and 3 is bigger reverb room.

 

7.1 speaker shift is a mystery to me tho. Even tho speakers are in default position, sound seems louder with it turned on together with 8ch dh. It removes the reverb effect or just makes the sounds louder. The music plays kinda cool with it

 

one more thing. Use original asus drivers from their site (2011) or uni xonar ?

In general you should only enable DH as far as I know... The windows output to the sound card should be set to 5.1 or 7.1. Whether to use dolby 1/2/3 is up to u. 1 is recording room, 3 is concert hall or somehting like that.

 

Whay is hf?

 

Dunno what to chooes ingame, but I guess it should be 5.1 or 7.1  audio or something like that if the game supports it.

post #15120 of 27996
I'm gonna guess that hf stands for high fidelity.

Not to sound dumb, but what is an isolator and how do I get one? The odd part is I don't hear these things with my Q701 or KSC75.
