Hey guys, I'm in the market for a good starting sound card that's gonna be used for playing A LOT of music (99% of the time) and was thinking of buying the Xonar DS; now, my question is: is the Xonar DS good for it's price range, and are there any options beside it?
Also, here's my motherboard (http://www.msi.com/product/mb/G31TM-P31.html). According to ASUS's website, the Xonar DS requires a PCI port; now, my mobo has one, but the problem is.... Some merchant websites listed the Xonar DS with a PCI 7.1 port requirement or something like that (I didn't even know that existed), will the Xonar DS work with my motherboard?
Anyway, I would really like some insight on this; thanks in advance!
P.S. How does the FiiO e11 compare to the Xonar DS in terms of sound quality?
EDIT: Using a Superlux HD661 btw
