    The Xonar Essence STX Q/A, tweaking, impressions thread

    I've noticed that only if I change the gain from normal to high I get an acceptable amp for my headphones. without it, even with system sound at 100%, the volume is too weak. I don't know, as higher gain can damage the headphones right? it looks like the amplification of the STX isn't worth much...

    What is better: Dolby surround simulation or authentic, quality stereo?

    I have a sound card(Asus Xonar Essence STX) installed in my PC that can simulate Dolby surround in headphones by a something called Dolby Pro Logic, which gives a good surround effect, nice echo and everything, but is only relevant to movies and computer games, not for music. On the other hand...

    Dolby surround of my sound card doesn't work properly

    How do you set it? and does it work with headphones or only with speakers?   Edit: I've just read in this STX review: http://www.computershopper.com/components/reviews/asus-xonar-essence-stx that the STX needs to connected to en external receiver through the digital output in order to use the...

    Dolby surround of my sound card doesn't work properly

    I have installed the Unified Xonar drivers.   And why disabling the OB sound audio? I don't want to mess with the BIOS settings...   I've tried to listen to this video through both the STX and the OB sound card, and only the Dolby settings made ant difference. However(maybe I haven't...

    Dolby surround of my sound card doesn't work properly

    I can't hear a proper dolby surround with my headphones. I think the reason for this is that the dolby settings of my Asus Xonar Essence STX sound card and Windows 7 are not "synchronized". I just watched a Gears Of War 2 walkthrough video, and weapon fire, explosions and talking, that came from...

    The Xonar Essence STX Q/A, tweaking, impressions thread

    I think the Dolby settings of the STX and Windows 7 are not "synchronized". I just watched a Gears Of War 2 walkthrough video, and weapon fire, explosions and talking that came from the sides, back or far away were very low or not audible at all. How can I set this correctly?

    The Xonar Essence STX Q/A, tweaking, impressions thread

    lol ok. Then maybe s different headphones are the solution? anything you can recommend(like the HD 380 Pro, closed, very sound isolating, same sound signature but with more bass)?

    The Xonar Essence STX Q/A, tweaking, impressions thread

    Do you recommended using a DAC/amp with the STX? this is what will give me more bass?

    Did you remove it because you didn't like it or because you upgraded to a better hardware?

    The Xonar Essence STX Q/A, tweaking, impressions thread

    I've just bought the Xonar Essence STX a few days ago. I have two problems with it:   1. There isn't enough bass, even the on-board sound card gives more bass. Maybe I need to tweak something in the Audio Center?   2. In order to squeeze 100% from this card I have to install this WASABI...
