    One of the first things I would try to solve noise problems is to use toslink instead of usb.

    I just updated to windows 10 version 2004. It seems to have fixed a lot of spatial sound issues.

    So what is the deal with windows 10 spatial sound options? My impression is that it really only works well for a select few games and isn't a substitute for standard virtual 7.1 at this time.

    The dongle has like 3v output. It will power pretty much everything.

    You might want to buy just a headphone amp with no dac, because the 7.1 support of the onboard audio is convenient for hesuvi. Generally, games are going to check the windows setting to decide what to output. So you are supposed to set it to 7.1, and then hesuvi can take that 7.1 from the game...

    The hunt is one exception in that it comes with binaural audio. In most other cases, to get a similar level of spatial quality, you would have to use surround sound from the game into a surround>binaural converter, which is the things like dolby headphone, sbx surround, sennheiser binaural...

    At this point, wait for the ps5 and see how that changes the situation.

    To get games to output 7.1, usually you have to set windows speaker configuration to 7.1. With the ae5, you can only set it to 5.1. So you'll be limited to virtual 5.1 generally.

    yes. In most cases, you want to use virtual 7.1, but this game is an exception since it already outputs virtual surround sound natively.

    Usually, I advise people that use hesuvi to use their motherboard audio as a dac, since it usually supports 7.1 in windows, so there is no need for vb cable, and the set up is simplified. You can then buy just a headphone amp.

    Competitive fps best audio setup

    In general, 5.1 in windows and sbx surround will be the best setting. People often use 33% sbx surround. You can confirm this easily by doing tests in game and seeing how well you can determine front vs back with eyes closed and no movement. In most games, it will only be able to be done...

    Well, to me, it sounds like he is having issues with power delivery to his dac. With a shorter cable he can have less capacitance and resistance from the cable, and that might be just enough help to solve his problems.

    I don't think it will matter in your case. For high end dacs with very low noise floors, using 16 bit introduces noise that can bottleneck their performance. For lower end dacs, there just isn't a very low noise floor to begin with, so it doesn't make much of a difference. And this is mostly...
