Xonar DG and foobar2000

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all, just got my Xonar DG sound card in the mail today after getting my Sennheiser 555's yesterday. Been playing around with settings and trying to make sure I have everything optimized. I randomly stumbled on a thread mentioning that you can change the device type to 64ohm+, which I did (and it sounds even better now), but now the volume slider in foobar2000 isn't working. It worked before but now it literally does nothing; I have to change the volume by clicking on the speaker icon in the tray. Any ideas? Thanks guys.

Foobar doesn't like the Xonar drivers much. That's why you get problems.

0 problems here.

What baffles me is that Foobar2000 uses Windows volume to control it, if you changed that, change it back to use Windows volume. Should fix it if that's the problem.

Hope that helps.

Not sure exactly what you're saying here. What do I need to check again?

Also, another newb question. I have an EQ set in foobar and an EQ set in the Xonar audio center. Is that recommended? Trying to get the perfect sound... equalizers everywhere and so many options. Gah!
