currently own the titanium HD, and it has an issue with having headphone plugged in, while using speaker unless it has a digital in.

What's the issue?

It's normal for the Titanium HD to require you to physically unplug the headphones from the headphone jack if you want to hear audio from your speakers. You need to remember to switch from headphones to 2.1 speakers in the Creative control panel too (although I think there's an option for it to do this automatically upon detection that there are headphones plugged in or not).

yeah, it's a known issue that the titanium hd doesn't have the switch to let you change inbetween like the STX. Was wondeirng if i used a y splitter to connect both the a2 and my headphone to the headphone jack if the audio would be degrading alot or barely noticeable
