    Does anyone know how this compares to portables such as the Pico by Headamp, a high end home theater receiver by a good brand like Denon, Onkyo, Yamaha, etc.?

    Is the Asus Xonar STX and Sennheiser Momentum (On Ear) a good match?   I read that the Xonar STX performs poorly with low impedance headphones. The Momentum cans are only 18 ohms.
