post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi !

 

Could someone tell me which external DAC/Amp to my current Essence STX's S/PDIF output should I buy ? I will use this cans for gaming.

 

I can't find O2 in any shop, so please give me names of different amp/dac's which will be fine with this cans.

 

Please for help

If you don't get your answer here, remeber that there are two other sections of the forum that deal with amps.

If you interested in gaiming only Xonar STX built-in AMP is fine but if you want improvement for music listening than you definitely need external DAC/AMP and Audioengine D1 would be a good start

The DAC on that card is great, use it. Right now I'm using my asgard with great results.

I would like to know - is it a good idea to connect Essence STX to Essence One by S/PDIF and then headphones to Essence One ? Will it give me better sound or it will be the same as Essence STX without Essence One ?

 

I can't use Essence One without Essence STX cause I need Dolby Headphone or Dolby Digital or some surround sound system to playing games.

 

So is that improve sound quality if I connect Essence One's coaxial to Essence STX ? It will be better than only Essence STX ?

I believe the Essence One is overpriced for what you get.

Hook these up to your Essence STX.
