So i have had my AKG MK 271 II headphones for about 3months now and i absolutely love these things. They are absolutely amazing and just pure awesome. But i know i am not using them to their full potential using my computers on board sound....So i decided i would budget out about $50,.....maybe willing to spend more... on a new sound card or DAC, whichever seems to be the best for the price. I would also like the DAC or sound card to have a built in headphone amp because i dont want to have to go back out and spend more money on one of those.
Now as far as to what i am going to use it for, well that would be mostly music with some audio editing and mixing on my computer, along with some light gaming, but in reality I dont care about how games will sound but i REALLY care about how my music stuff will sound.
So i have been looking at the xonar sound cards....but i have heard they are not the best for music. But right now newegg.com is having a sale on the xonar DSX 7.1 sound card its $40!!! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829132053 I am 100% open to ANY ideas, so your feedback is greatly apreciated!!!!
