I recently bought a pair of AKG K701 . I use them with an asus dgx sound card at highest possible 64 Ohm amp. The sound on stereo is we can say good(not so much) but not very loud even at 100% volume .
In the other hand when enable surround sound Dolby headphone (with all the setting on 7.1 virtual from widnows and the sound card ) i do get surround but the positions of the sounds are messed up in bf4 . I cannot understand where the sound comes from .
All that said i decided to upgrade my sound card . I came through a lot of post in many forum trying to figure out which card combines good surround sound / position audio and good music playback .
I was thinking about Sound Blaster Zx but many people have drivers issues and surround sound issues and in some cases noise when the computer is under load.
What are your suggestions ?
Thanks for the help
