Okay, so after reading a plethora of views and opinions and what not on the ST vs. STX, I find it hard to believe that some people say it is the same card.
I had the STX for about a week and I have enjoyed it thus far, but I feel like I'll be going the 2.1 route later on (after I get my Emo Airmotiv 5's), so I ordered the ST...
Straight away, the ST is different... I started playing some of the regular stuff I test with and WOW! Like the difference is DEFINITELY there.
The ST seems to separate things more than the STX and it seems like it accentuates the small details... Which is a good thing and a bad thing.
It's good because I'm rediscovering music and I'm hearing things I didn't before (weird, right? It's the same card...)
The bad thing about it is that the extra "detail" is overwhelming and quickly fatigues the ears... Which is unfortunate because hearing little details is amazing.
Any owners prefer one or the other?
EDIT: I've actually found a comparison. The ST sounds kinda like the HK 3940 Headphone amp. Interesting...
