    USB Sound-Card\DAC with Dolby Headphone support? Upgrading from a Xonar DX.

    Thank you, this is just what I needed. I ended up buying the Sennheiser GSX1000, which is rather pricey and may seem like a waste considering the effects can be replicated with HeSuVi, however it should be noted that you need an audio device that can be configured as 7.1 channels within...

    Astro Mixamp or Asus Xonar card?

    I recently just purchased an Astro Mixamp to go with my Sennheiser HD 598, as I am a pretty avid gamer and enjoy the surround effect that Dolby Digital provides very much.   However, I digress. I'd like to know what's better:   I understand that the Mixamp provides the user with the...
