Hello! I am new to good audio, but I really like it so far.
I have bought [used] HD558 from amazon, and loving them so far! They are amazing!
However, my integrated audio card [z68 extreme3 gen3 mobo] http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=Z68%20Extreme3%20Gen3] isn't pulling the slack.
I feel like I need more bass with it. I feel like spending $100 - $200 for a integrated sound card and an amp to get more bass. How do you guys feel for a Asus Xonar Essence STX? It got really good reviews from what I see and costs $180.
This is my first big purchase so please feel free to comment and criticise. I mostly listen to music, play games and watch movies with headphones on.
