In a attempt to reduce the number of units and cables, I'm looking to replace my external amp+dac combo with a set of active speakers (Kef X300A, USB interface). I've been plugging in my Headphones (HD650) to my amp, physically switching from Speaker sound to headphones. I'm considering buying a xonar STX to use as a headphone amp.
- Internal soundcard for headphones
- External soundcard for speakers
Anyone running a similar setup? How do you switch from Speakers to headphone? Is there a easy way to do it, or would require me to do it via controlpanel manually everytime?
