Can a Soundblaster Z power the HE-400's properly?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
As the title says. I want to keep my soundblaster Z, but I want to know if anyone has an input on if it can drive the HE-400's? It seems to power my ATH-700x's and my recently bought Q701's (which I am returning cause they arent for me).

I dont want to ideally buy another soundcard and deticated amp as there is no way to turn off the soundblaster amp in the headphone plug and theirs destortions for workarounds.

I would be willing to upgrade to the ZxR if it supports analog 5.1 (with my z5500's) and has a much better built in amp that can drive these better.

I will mostly be gaming with these cans.

You're going to want a dedicated amp, not a sound card.
