hello everyone in head-fi, this is my first post here so please excuse me for any mistakes regarding audio specifications or anything similar.
I just ordered Denon AH-D5000 along with creative titanium HD sound card, I currently own a Recon3D pcie sound card. I really don`t know much about amplifiers, impedance and this kind of stuff, I primary use my computer as HTPC, gaming and productivity,
the question I want to ask is:
1-pairing the DENON AH-D5000 with the titanium HD will I be needing an external amp or not, and if I do need one how much better will the sound will be with the amp in % ( please bare in mind that I will be using it for gaming as will)
2- what kind of amp is in the recon3D pcie,? would it be sufficient for the denon d5000, I currently using the recon3d with the denon 1100 and the volume is already laud at only 10%.
3- if paring an amp with the titanium HD would it ruin the 3D sound effects of games and movies or not?
4- what everyone think about this amplifier for the setup above SCHIIT Valhalla Single-Ended Triode Headphone Amplifier.
I would really appreciate a detailed and clear reply from someone who is highly knowledgable or has similar setup.
thank you all for your help in advance :)
