I'm upgrading my whole chain (Sennheiser HD 800 inc ^^) and have some questions.
I'm currently Using Dobly Headphone (Mode 1) with a Xonar Essence ST and I'm thinking about switching to a titanium.
I need digital output to feed my future dac (probably gonna be a xonar essence one). Also CMSS-3D seems to be pretty cool because it uses DirectSound3d while Dolby Headphone actually uses no data from the game. Am I right?
Simply put: I wanna have the best card for Counterstrike Global offensive (which seems to have DirectSound3D support ?!? And what is ALchemy?) and it should have digital output (Unfortunatly The Xonar Essence ST is not able to output digital Dolby Headphone).
Could you help me clear this up a little bit? What should i go with?
I saw that you already tested some source based games Nameless. What do you think would be the best way for professional gaming in CS:GO, because I'm not really astonished by the result of Dolby Headphone.
Gaming: PC ==> Soundcard ==> (Digital Toslink/Optical) Asus Essence one ==> Headphones
Music: PC ==> Asus Essence one ==> Headphones
