Asus Xonar DG + JVC HA RX900 Setup

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone,

 

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.

 

Thanks!

1 - Take a look at this. (im also member of Ocn)

 

2- Better to plug the headphones on the soundcard. The speaker hp outs are low quality generally.
