Any of the Asus xonar sound cards can drive the Philips Fidelio, but a headphone amplifier should at least do a little better job.
So using an Asus sound card DS, DSX, DX, D1 with an external headphone amplifier makes a good combo.
The cheaper Xonar DG & DGX do come with a basic headphone amplifier.
I'm not sure about what headphone amplifiers are sold in Australia.
The PAV2V ships from Canada, I figure members of the British commonwealth have decent trade with one another.
On eBay there is the amplifier seller Fred Fred 2004, I believe he is down under.
Not sure if sold down under, but an O2 (objective) headphone amplifier would make a good long term investment.
