Just got my Xonar ST in

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
and its unbelievable, my surround sound setup includes some energy speakers and paradigm tower speakers. We played a bunch of music earlier and it sounds so good.

I was thinking "oh man why did I just spend 180$ on a sound card" but now I have no regrets now. This is such a huge improvement over my X-fi Extreme that can't even output 5.1 over optical.

Just listening to some Dream Theater right now and I had to post a thread about how inane this sound card is. My HD555 sounds so good with the build in amp, and everything is so clear.

I am seriously considering picking up a pair of HD600's or HD650's this summer now.

Congrats mate!

Good work on the Dream Theater. Did you hear they have a new drummer in the works? http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/bla...sitemID=157511
