Speakers & Headphones sort of Simultaneously with soundcard

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
After seeing some of the sales of the Titanium X-Fi HD. I decided to read some reviews. General consensus I found was its good for Gaming, and still not bad for Music.

But I read you can't get the Speakers and Headphones to work simultaneously unless you use a splitter.

I don't really need them to work simultaneously per say. What I need/want is the Headphones to work for Skype, while I can still play Music through the Speakers. (When I game, or not on skype, I will simply just set headphones to default, since they sound better than my current speakers)

Currently, I use crappy onboard audio. But I got this work by plugging my Headphones into front panel. And setting the default to Speakers for Music. Then in Skype I can set the default to my Headphones.
But one of the settings I had to click on the onboard was "Make front and rear output devices playback two different audio streams simulataneously" instead of "Mute the rear output device, when a front headphone plugged in"

I was wondering if I could still do something similar with the Titanium HD, or is this impossible? Are there any sound cards that this is possible? My budget is about $120 Max.

I think simply.. I want a sound card that lets me manage both front panel/back panel separately. or lets me manage both Speaker and Headphone on the back panel separately.

I just plugged in my X-Fi Titanium HD and plugged the headphones in and out several times, and then I was furious!

My X-Fi XtremeGamer can pump audio to speakers and headphones at the same time without any problems.

Does your STX allow you to do simultaneous?

The HD has an option that lets you choose whether to mute the rear or not when the front is plugged in.

So when thats clicked.
Can you use both at the same time, in the manner I do now with onboard?
If you can check that would be great.

Gah sorry I mis read the option. It's actually to switch from 2/2.1 to Headphone settings. There's no option to output to headphones and speakers a the same time.

I guess the Titanium HD is definitely not an option then.

Has anyone tried or know its possible to:
manage both front and back panel,
OR
back panel for both speakers and headphones

separately, so it doesn't automute one or the other. (without having to unplug)
If so what cards do this?

I was thinking about purchasing a used Auzentech Prelude.
I've heard good things about this card in the past.
I was wondering if its still a good card today.

Also can it manage front panel and rear panel, or does it automatically mute rear once front is plugged in?
