I actually owned the Asus Essence STX before I switched over to the Audinst HUD-MX1...
so is the Sound Blaster Z actually comparable to the STX or am I kidding myself?
Would I need to pair an amp with the Sound Blaster Z to get better sound quality on my Philips Fidelio X1?
and more importantly, how should I go around controlling the volume on PC configurations.
So what, what I usually do is to set the volume to max in windows/PC and use the knob on my DAC and/or speakers to control (is this the right way)?
having said that, how would that apply for X1 + BoomPro Mic?
(1) How would I control chat + mic volume on the BoomPro Mic
(2) What should I set the inline volume control on the BoomPro Mic to be? (I was thinking of max, and let the Sound Blaster be the control)
is this recommended?
