I'm looking to buy my first real pair of headphones for PC gaming. After reading a famous headphones post by MLE I have decided to buy DT990 600 OHM, unfortunately I have a mini-ITX rig that doesn't have a space to install PCIe soundcard. So I was looking at external solutions and found this new external soundcard announced by ASUS called Xonar Essence STU. On paper specs looks very similar to famous internal Essence STX minus proprietary technologies like Dolby surround and such.
Do you think I should buy it for my setup? I really want all the quality of Essence series in the nice USB package, but at the same time I kinda feel bad that at this price it doesn't include any virtual surround software with it like Dolby Surround for example.
Thank in advance!
