*BEWARE*
Do not expect exceptional BC2 sound from the Xonar DX. If you at all play BC2 on a regular basis, you should avoid this card as it won't give you the positional cues you're looking for. If you're playing virtually ANY OTHER GAME besides BC2 you'll love this card. It's excellent for Call of Duty. It's excellent for RPGs and Racers. In fact, it'll do RPGs and racers better than the Creative cards.
If you absolutely must play BC2, again, you're looking at the Creative Titanium unless you can somehow score a Auzentech Forte in this price range.

I see that this card does not do well with BC2. Has this carried over to BF3 or is BF3 good on this sound card?

I own them. They are decent if you like dubstep or hip hop. They are also very loud if you hook them up to a proper amplified sound card and add some treble. Although, I bought them primarily for the looks and listening to music on the go or at school because of the iphone functionality fairly comfy too.

post #656 of 5023
Hey guys, I am looking to buy a 2.1 speaker system. I read through the 1st post and I am a little lost. I listen to a wide variety of music, mainly DnB and downtempo right now.

I am looking for a quality set for ~150 no more than $200. I do not want overpowering bass, but something decent enough for my bassier music. I don't want it to get all funky and clicky, I guess muddy is the term.

I am by no means an audiophile, clearly.

Thanks in advance!

http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=300-650 - Bookshelfs amazing,,, same setup I have
http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=300-628 - I have the 12 which is just more bass its up to you the 12" is just a little more cost wise
I must say this setup sounds amazing for the price you will never find something better.

Formatted more and added the AKG Q701 (same soundstage properties as the K701 but bassier, better looking and at the same price as K701) and Sennheiser HD800 in the gaming headphone section.

What's amp appropriate for Sennheiser HD 800?

Depends on your budget. Anything below $1000 US, then the O2 Amp
