I'm interested in trying some Dolby stuff with my collection of cans. The thing is I already own an Objective 2.
Is the Asus U7 able to deliver Dolby Headphone through line out? I know for a fact that the thing won't be able to power many of my cans. So, I'll use it as a DAC for games, and thus I'll plug it into my Objective 2.
Of course, if the thing won't do any Dolby stuff through line out... can I use just the headphone jack as a line out?
I've never used the U7.
The U7 appears to use the same head amp as the Xonar DG/DGX.
You should be able to plug a external headphone amplifier (O2) into the headphone jack of the U7 and plug a headphone into the O2
and get Headphone Surround Sound that is processed by the U7.
Just use the lowest gain setting on the U7, technically it's double amping, but the U7's head amp is not that powerful in the first place, chances are the U7's amp will not affect the audio quality in a noticeable way.
