    When I was running the X7 with a PC 5.1 system, I was able to do this however now I am running it with an external power amp with full range speakers. The only volume control I have is the X7s unless I keep adjusting the gain control on the power amp for each of the 5 channels each time I want to change the volume. Not very practical in that case.

    To be honest I'd never run a power amp directly out of X7.Had one too many accidental volume adjustments with that things. Works great as a DAC though.

    Hi there,

    I love my X7 and am thinking of buying the sparkos op amps. So few questions if anyone can be of help would be greatly appreciated. Why cant we use 4 SS3602s? Why 2 3602s and 2 3601s?

    Also if 4 3602s cant be used which slots do the 3602s go into and where do the 3601s go in. I dont wanna mess anything up installing and asking before i purchase the op amps.

    Ty for helping a newb

    I am using the X7 and Creative BT-W2 Portable Bluetooth with my ps4 and I can hear chat and talk in chat. But how do I record chat audio in OBS?

    X7 is internally built to use 2 singles and two duals, why this specific configuration was chosen you'd have to ask Creative. As for the orientation you'll have to check markings on thw stock opamps or browse this thread and look for pictures.

    I tried that and no audio wasn't coming into streamlabs. I am switching to OBS soon. Is there any program I can use to confirm that its a problem with stream labs?

    Without going into unnecessary detail, the two different sets of sockets on the board perform different functions. No, you do not want to plug the wrong type into the socket. Go back to page 1 of this thread where the original author has discussed swapping out the OP amps. There are pictures that will help. Each OP amp has a marker in one corner to help with alignment. On many OP amps, it is a dot or dimple. On the Sparkos, it is a "golden L" instead. Make sure you are holding the X7 the right way in reference to the pictures. The smaller single stage 3601 will go right against the edge of the compartment. The larger dual 3602 are slightly off center. Note the golden L corner does not go the same way between sides. Also note as mentioned most times it comes up, the taller dual 3602 will prevent you from closing the the compartment with the original cover. I user some rubber lifters to raise the X7 off my glass desk by a few millimeters. Lots of other solutions.

    Set the device to output to another audio device such as the onboard audio and check whether any sound comes through

    Try disabling Direct Mode, aside from that, no ideas.
