Onboard the card are the LME49710 (single) and the NJM2114 (dual)

That card got exactly the same Bur Brown DAC PCMC1796 as the ASUS Xonar STX.
So don't believe the difference in specs by the two. The DACs are the same.

What do you mean 5.1 gaming btw? Headphones ->dolby amp positional audio type of thing?
Based on the suggestions you're giving, you're asking the guy to kill his sound card. The NJM2114D is a dual opamp package and as such is not compatible with the LME49710, which is a single opamp package. That will cause things to die.

The NE5532 is pretty much a generic opamp at this point and has a worse slew rate than the NJM2114D that it would be replacing (9V/microsec. vs 15V/microsec) which makes it a slower opamp.

Same fact goes for the NE5534 vs LME49710 (13 V/microsec. vs 20V/microsec). You at least got the single opamp package right but recommending more generic parts is somewhat questionable.

Spoony, I'm confused why, in all sound card related threads, you post that BC2 isn't affected by sound cards when multiple users, even well known OCN users, report that the Xonar DX sucks at BC2.

ITT: Spoony needs to learn what signal to noise ratio and dynamic range actually means.

^google that. Go through it. Then tell that to creative. That's coming from them not me.
And I'm not suggesting anything. I mentioned the ones compatible and which ones can be swapped around according to Creative. So please don't assume things.
Thank you

I think you need to learn what the signal ratio on a Dac does.

ok I had my fun. Hope you can count to 20 with your shoes on.
lets say 16bit 16*6 = 96db <- that's dynamic range

Lets say 24bit 24bit*6 = 144db <-dynamic range again

THAT MEANS FROM 20BIT AND UP WITH A SNR OF 120 (20*6=120) NOISE WILL BE ADDED!!!!!

Back to the books boys

Honestly i prefer my old xtremegamer fatal1ty to the xonar D1, facts... fps games are not so great game mode nor strategy like dawn of war 2, i cant hear particle cannons at all, the same with the capsule pod, explotions, etc. I'll wait for the new Z series of creative i hope they fixed the mess of those recon3d.

Dolby is good i'd suggest xonars for music and videos, not for serious gaming.

even if it was 30$ what he will do with it if he upgraded into 2GPUs and got no PCI left:headscrat and i`m sure you know that the Future is now for the PCIe

so in other words the DG will serve him well but not for long time

Then go with the DGX. Simple.
