Hello everyone i am brand new here and i wanted some informations about my setup .
I currently have a creative x-fi titanium with a beyerdynamic dt 770 with hercules speakers 2.1 ->http://www.hercules.com/us/Speakers/bdd/p/143/xps-101/
I am about to buy a new headphone and my preference goes to Akg Q701
I am a gamer and use my headphone 60% of the time 40% the speakers ( on headphone i use the game mode of my soundcard with cmss 3d sound)
I have some questions about the connectivity , i want to have my speakers and headphone plugged at the same time and be able to switch from one to another easily without plugin or unplugin cables
I've been looking at some thread and most of the people recommand to buy a DAC and an amp to solve the problem .
But if i understand a DAC is basicialy a soundcard and for me plugin a soundcard to a soundcard is weirdo plus my budget is limited .
I was wondering if this http://electronicsusa.com/mk5.html would do the trick without losing sound quality .( if it does do you guys have a link to buy it in europe ? )
Do you guys have any spare solution (better quality , without sound quality loss )
And about the amp do i have to buy it ? what will be the improvement with it ?
Excuse me for my English , not my native language .
