So Whaddya know, it IS MADE FOR ALL YOUR BEAUTIFUL HEADPHONES, haha!

ohhhh yeahhhhh........

 

Wait I dont have an X7...... :(

Thanks for the help EVSHRUGS!

 

I've got the DSS hooked up to a desktop amp which is working pretty great! 

 

 

The X7 looks awesome but I am debating what would be better:

 

An older receiver (e.g. Marantz) for DTS-HD, DTS to Dolby Headphone conversion VS the X7 :)

 

 

 

Also debating whether I should just buy a standalone high quality DAC too to test things out.

 

For example:

 

 

HQ DAC + Uncompressed PCM (w/ in-game headphone settings selected *usually the in-game headphone setting has some sort of HTRF processing built in) 

 

VS

 

DSS Dolby Digital 5.1ch/Dolby Headphone 

 

 

 

I thought I noticed a huge difference in sound quality in PCM Dolby Bypass VS Dolby 5.1ch, but, I might just be tripping nuggets and mistaken hahaha

 

Thank you

Great news Evs smily_headphones1.gif
I shall await your full impressions.
So, can you confirm that the X7 supports no form of DTS? Not even the basic, non-Neo, non-HD, version? Cheers biggrin.gif

Conquerator declared himself ready to review the X7 with the HE-560, K7XX. :evil:

I'll compare the schiit out of it, the two headphones and to my desktop rig.

Speaking of the X7... :D

I was wondering, will a Mangi 2 Uber + Modi 2 Uber + Sound Blaster Z sound significantly better than a solo Sound Blaster Z for music and games for a AKG 712 and Teac LS-H265 passive speakers? (X-post from Nameless Guide to get some replies).

Magni 2 Uber would be a good upgrade. According to Stillhart [hope he doesn't mind], the Modi [regular] was not an appreciable upgrade from the SB Z. The Modi 2 Uber would have to be significantly better to warranty its purchase vs the SB, but only time would tell.

Seems like just getting the Magni 2 Uber is your safest bet. If you feel even a slight improvement is worth it, you can then give the Modi a shot :)
