Hey everyone, I have a Xonar DG and whenever I have it set to the headphone setting in the xonar audio center, it makes a very faint static noise that is just loud enough to be extremely annoying. When I switch it to the 2 speaker setting, the noise disappears. Is there a difference is sound quality between the headphone and 2 speaker settings? Also, when I run it through my Sony receiver, the noise disappears also, even when on the headphone mode. But I'm worried the receiver is also degrading the sound quality because for some reason it boosts the bass incredibly. I went through all of the settings and no eq's were set on anything except 0. What is the best solution for my problem? Should I leave it on headphone mode with the receiver, or should I put it on 2 speaker mode? Thanks a lot for your help.
