I have the creative xfi titanium.

 

I would personally wait until November 30th

 

Currntly I am running Windows 8 and the beta drivers dont allow mics to work. Which sux. I can not get any of my mics working.

 

The driver support is mediocre but an official driver will be coming out in November 30th. We shall see if it will be good.

 

XFI Titanium is an older tec than the HD model. I would get the HD model to be honest.

The DAC in the TiHD is quite nice, but it doesn't have a headphone amp. I would stick with what you already have.

it was started a year ago but has been constantly updated. And yes, it will improve the sound. The AD900 does not need additional external amplification.

my mic is plugged onto the onboard realtek wink.gif i'm not using the official drivers anyway (PAX ftw). Thats why i need to know, the HD here cost around $270-$300 SGD, while the titanium offers for $109.

is there a big sound differences between titanium and HD? i'm sure AD900 doesn't need extra amp but is it better if there is?

The Audio Techinca AD900 doesn't need a headphone amp its a headphone that easy to drive. So the Titanium HD would be a very good choice for it. Now if you had totally different headphones that did req a amp then it be a totally different story.

Made a check with the shops around the mall, one of them selling the HD at SGD$230, is it worth buying for the price?
