Well you've been extremely helpful. I was looking at the x7 though... As expensive as it is I wonder if it might just do everything I want it to and do it well. But I don't even know exactly what I do and don't need yet so I wouldn't want to foolishly drop cash on that.
Reading some reviews though I don't think the Recon is for me.
EDIT: After a break followed by some further reading and you're few simple explanations and pieces of advice I believe a lot of things fell together for me.
I think I'll go with the X2 a good sound card for my PC and a mixamp for console. As far as I can tell a good sound card will be an ideal DAC/Amp for my PC so I can listen to music or use Dolby for games. And the mixamp will be best for consoles. Does it work for PS4?Edited by ShadowSkulkerer - 10/18/14 at 10:39am
