I have recently been looking into purchasing a new pair of headphones and a DAC/Amp for music and gaming. However, I quickly realized that a DAC couldn't output surround sound. So someone suggested to me that I put an internal sound card in, like the Xonar DG/X, and then connect my DAC/Amp to it via optical cable. If I did that, using the Schiit Magni/Modi combo, would I have surround sound, and would I still have optimal sound quality through my headphones? (AKG K712's)

Actually, the Modi does support optical. I think they made another version of it.

Ah, my bad. I was looking at pictures of the older model.
Still, I'm afraid it's only for stereo since it only has one headphone socket.
