soundblaster xi fi hd and fiio e17

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have soundblaster xi fi hd and fiio e17. I want to use both (creative for games , E17for music)

The soulution seems to be to connect optical output of creative USB card to the optical input of my Fiio e17

Can someone point me a link to Amazon.com to such cable , and if its possible to use both creative and e17 in parallel ?

 

Ps: in my e17 box i have the tip of the optical cable....

 

Thanx

With this cable you will not have to use the optical adapter that came with the E17

 

3ft Optical Toslink to Mini Toslink M/M 5.0mm OD Molded Cable

I am using the cable , and i connect optical out of my creative card to the fiio e17

Is this better than connecting only the Fiio to the PC ?

I would assume you would need to use the SB X-Fi HD for FPS gaming.

But you could try removing the SB X-Fi HD, plugging the E17 straight into your Win PC (optical) and try using the motherboard built in sound card.
