I'm currently fixed on getting the DT 770 Pro 80.
This is the first time I'm going to get an enthusiast-level headphone set and would like to gather as much information as I can get regarding the DAC and AMP and surround processing before I spend on them. My budget for a headphone is in the DT 770 / A900X range.
I will be using the headphone to play games and listening to a variety of music (including lounge, synth). I like deep bass sounds. I'll be using the headphone with my laptop Schenker XMG A102 laptop - Core i7, Windows 7, which comes with Geforce GT650m + Intel HD 4000 and VIA HD Audio.
I like the bass that comes out of music pieces like the Uncharted Worlds Galaxy Map music in Mass Effect series.
I would like to know how best to convert the DT 770 Pro into a 7.1 surround sound, and at the same time maintain good music listening experience.
For DAC/AMP, I thought of getting the Audioquest Dragonfly 1.2.
But the Dragonfly does not have the ability to process virtual surround. In that case, should I combine it with another USB virtual surround processor? If so, what is the best virtual surround processor USB processor?
And will a USB surround processor like the Xonar U7 or Astro Mixamp Pro interfere with the DAC on the Dragonfly?
Are there any Dolby Headphone capable USB processor or other USB Virtual 7.1 processor that is worth getting currently available at ebay?
And if I need to get both a virtual surround processor and an AMP/DAC, how should I connect to my laptop - the AMP first, then the surround processor?
Or is it possible to get an AMP or DAC like the Dragonfly 1.2 and use a software like the Razor Surround? Are there any other downloadable virtual surround software?
Thank You !
