Hey guys so I recently ordered an ATH-A900X as my first pair of cans and just getting into the audiophile world. They will be here in about a week hopefully
Now I want to be able to game and watch movies/tv shows with surround sound.
I used to have a gaming headset that had dolby pro logic IIx which worked quite well with movies/tv shows, not so much with games and I loved it for the immersion, you could hear so much more than just plain stereo mode.
I am looking into these two products:
Sound Blaster Omni Surround 5.1
Sound Blaster Recon 3D
They are both external sound cards.
I don't have a sound card and don't intend on getting one to put into my pc.
Before you scream Infedel, I will also be investing in either a Fiio e10 or Audioengine D1, but later on in 2 or 3 months when I save up some more... (the woes of a student T_T)
Personally im looking towards the omni but unsure of what any of these external cards are like. Any one have experience in this area?
