Hey so I've recently signed up for head-fi and loving it here so far!

I just need some help since I'm new to audio compared to most of you, right now I am using ATH-R70x open back headphones (great by the way) with the essence STX II

I am wondering on whats some good competitive settings with this card. I'm not sure if I should be using 2-ch with Hi-Fi or if 8-ch dolby headphone (using DH-1 .. DH-2 and DH-3 don't sound very nice; with the Uni xonar drivers which are the better ones) is better for positional hearing, knowing where people are by their footsteps.

I know a lot say just use stereo with good open back headphones, but what if you use dolby with good open back headphones? I'm not sure what people use at the e-sport theme but I know some of their headphones do have 7.1 supported without the need of a special sound card. (please dont link that virtual barber shop video, it uses binaural, which majority of games do not use)

I appreciate any help and advice on the subject! :)
