Using Asus Essence STX and Titanium Xi-Fi HD at the same time

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Currently I am using my Asus Essence STX for my speakers and Windows default device for internet, movies and music. However, I would like to dedicate my Titanium Xi-Fi HD to gaming, specically CS:GO through my headphones. Whenever I try to enable the Titanium, I get no sounds out of the headphones. Any suggestions or solutions to solve this situation? THanks in advance.

I would say to sell off both the Titanium (non-HD?) and Essence STX and buy the Titanium HD with a Schiit Magni amp.

Cool, you already have a Titanium HD.

So sell off the Essence STX and buy an external headphone amplifier (Schiit Magni $99) to plug into the Titanium HD.

Also plug the speakers into the Titanium HD.

What computer speakers do you have?

I have Logitech Z623. I bought the Essence STX because its a better sound card for music. I already spent a decent amount on buying the soundcards and AD700. Any other thoughts or solutions?

Did you disable the motherboard's on-board audio, in the BIOS?

Otherwise the problem is beyond me.

 

One thing the surprises me, the Titanium HD with an external headphone amplifier (Schiit Magni), should equal the sound quality (headphone wise) of the Essence STX, might even best it a little.

As the Titanium HD has a slightly better DAC and buffer op-amp.

Yes. I disabled the motherboard's onboard audio. That was the first thing I did. Thanks for your input. I appreciate it.

NVM. I got it to work by unplugging AC97. I forgot that I did not need onboard whatsoever.
