I'll keep this simple.
just got the ASUS DGX sound card, has Dolby headphone, but my primary use will be the 5.1 channel audio with my RX-V990, the sound card has a crossover / LFE
As for Dolby headphone, I have a very simple question, hopefully easily answered- if I turn on Dolby headphone and run a 3.5mm to dual rca cable to CD on my receiver, then plug the headphone part into the receiver headphone jack will I still have Dolby headphone through the Yamaha or will it be changed back to regular stereo and or silent cinema. I'd like to use it as Dolby headphone through the receiver in CD mode, and use the 5.1 channel audio from the sound card to the receiver for speakers.
sound card/Dolby headphone --> old receiver(RCA) --> out to headphones,
^will that work^
you might ask why not just plug your headphones into the sound card. 1, the jack is in use for the 5 channel audio to the receiver, and 2, (if possible) it would be more convenient to just plug the headphones into the receiver. also if I'm correct the headphones I want might need more power, from an amp or something like the RX-V990
on a side note I Did some searching, and I like these:
Fischer Audio FA-003Ti - search amazon or their site. right now they're $200.27 what do you think about those? I'm not pro into headphones lol, but sometimes I have younger family over and they sleep across the hall so I Can't be blasting/playing music or movies loud or playing shooters/games loud either, headphones would be a good idea or.. a compromise.
along with those headphones seeing as I Game a lot, I'm thinking I'll get that AntLion modmic thing with the mute button. sounds like a good idea for me. google it if you're interested, it's an attachable 3.5mm microphone for regular headphones.
also I probly wouldn't be able to get the headphones for some time.
