Hi, Right now I only have the Astro A40 headset and the Mixamp, I am debating about getting a Sound Blaster Z soundcard for Positional audio, But read issues with latency via Dolby Digital Live as I do not want latency as I play Counter Strike on PC.
I connect the Mixamp with an optical cable from onboard motherboard audio.
I don't know if your onboard audio is creating latency or not. You're saying you've been reading about issues, but I haven't heard you say your experiencing actual latency issues yourself.
So I can't say whether getting a soundcard will fix your latency issues, because I don't know if you HAVE any latency issues.
No, I was just saying that I don't notice audio latency on my PC with SBX, nor do I notice latency on console with the mixamp. The time I notice latency is when I tell the SBZ to encode DD 5.1.
