I am new to the forum but i heard that if i have any questions about Music Equipment, this forum is my best solution.
I would like to ask for your advice on how to choose between Xonar Phoebus and Essence STX to go with my IE 80.
I am a mild gamer and mild music listener that have a bit of budget and would like to treat myself better with some high quality equipment.
Games i play currently are mainly crysis 3 and CS:GO and music are different but mostly acoustics and high range sounds like thepianoguys and sunghajung.
Which one should i choose?
Xonar Phoebus OR Essence STX
Is Dolby 7.1 really matter to gaming ?
I used ie8 for gaming with on board sound for a long period of time and i am satisfied with the details it gave me so i went for the IE80 upgrade.
But then i heard that IE80 needs good quality sound card in order to unleash the beast, is that right?
Thank you all for your help and have a happy Easter :D
