Need sound card for gaming and music - Page 2

post #11 of 31
Thanks for making this thread, OP. Convinced me to ordered the Titanium HD myself. Just about to put the order through the Egg.

edit: On the other hand, should I go for the Xonar DS with amp? But then does the Egg has headphone amps? Sigh. Not trying to hijack.

Depends on the headphones you'll be using. Some will require and amp, some not.

Do you know if they are the 50ohm or 120ohm version? There were different specs between the most recent model and the older version.

I have these ones:
I also have a pair of HD555s. Could you tell me what you would do with those as well? Thanks sir!

Those are the 50ohm version; you probably won't see very much of an improvement with an amp. It's always nice to have in case you do plan on upgrading to less sensitive/higher impedance cans in the future, but for 595/555 it is really not necessary (they both use the same drivers, so electrical requirements should not change between models).

So the Titanium HD is a solid choice? How much better would that be over the DS without an amp? Thanks for the help so far, +1.

Definitely a solid choice, especially if you are gaming. I think you'll be very happy with the improvement over onboard

Thanks!

What's the deal with the power connector on that card? It looks like a floppy connector.. I don't even know if I have any of those.

I wasn't aware it needed an external power connection

Edit: Here we go

Quote:
Along the front edge of the card, we see a port curiously reminiscent of an IDE or floppy connector. This kind of port is typically meant for a proprietary “I/O Drive” that is usually sold as an addon, but this time around Creative has announced no plans for such a device to accompany the X-Fi Titanium HD. Such an addon would be welcome, as they use digital signaling to bypass the electrical noise problem that plagues most front-panel audio.
