Total audio novice here. After much browsing, reading and searching these forums I recently made a few purchases for my gaming desktop PC.
I had some spare $$ recently, and decided to test new waters by actually buying a stand alone sound card and some decent headphones. I wanted to see if better quality audio hardware could make a difference to the level of immersion while gaming.
As the title mentions, I purchased the ASUS Xonar DG and JVC HA- RX900 a few days.
I have two big questions (I've tried searching these forums and the internet) that I haven't found satisfying answering to.
Please keep in mind that I'm primarily concerned about gaming with headphones.
1. How do I setup the Xonar DG Audio Manager (what kind of settings to use with a pair of headphones)?
2. Where should I plug the headphone jack (I have two options here: Directly into the Asus Xonar DG sound card or in the volume/bass control unit for my creative Inspire p580 speaker system)? Does it even matter?
I appreciate the time you've taken to read and reply to this query. I'm hoping I learn more about audio as my stay on these forums lengthens.
