Basically this is the setup I'm planning on using. Will Dolby Headphones work? Or is this a bad idea?
Xonar Essense --> Matrix M-Stage amp --> AKG K702 headphones.
I'm new to high-end audio and I'm trying to pick a good setup for myself. I want a high quality setup for FPS gaming to use with Dolby Headphones.
I picked out AKG K702 headphones after reading up on this site. More reading seems to say that I need a powerful amp to drive it. I liked the look and functionality of the Matrix M-Stage and it has great reviews on this site. However apparently the onboard usb dac doesn't support Dolby Headphones. So I'm now looking at the Asus card to provide that functionality. I was thinking of using RCA cable to connect the amp and card together.
So my question is, will this setup work?
Will having two amps chained together be an issue?
Can I disable the onboard asus amp?
I read somewhere that that Dolby Headphones is disabled on the RCA output. Is that true?
Sorry if I posted in the wrong forum.
