Astro 2013 Mixamp with Asus Xonar Essence STX - Help with the setup!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I've got the STX installed in my computer at the moment but I also plan on buying an astro mixamp for my my console systems to get that simulated surround sound effect.  The headphones i'll be using are Senn HD 600. Now what I want set up is the mixamp line-in connected to the headphone amp port of the STX and the optical in on the mixamp will be plugged into the consoles.  The reason im doing this is because im only buying the mixamp and will use the Senns for both console gaming and the computer.  Will the STX still successfully drive the Senns thru the mixamp or will it just cause distortion?

Chances are with that setup only the Astro Mix-amp's headphone amplifier would do the driving.
