What do you guys think about pairing the ASUS xonar Essence ST and the Sennheiser HD 800 together? I currently have the Essence ST and am contemplating purchasing the HD 800 (300 ohm impedance). The essence ST can supposedly power headphones up to 600 ohms so it should technically work. Has anyone tried this combination before? How does it sound?
Is there any way to change out the DAC on the sound card and put in a ES9018 32bit SABRE32 Reference Audio DAC? I'm just thinking of a cheap way of getting some of the xonar Essence One in my current sound card without paying tons of $$$.
