Nope, actually I have pretty much nothing. I'll soon build a rig and I'm looking for the best parts that I can get. Also I've never used anything but onboard audio. I'm pretty sure the DLX will blow my mind rolleyes.gif

You will like it. Surround sound mode works very well.

Have you tried getting a replacement card?

Hello everyone,

I currently use onboard audio to drive my Edifier Luna Eclipse, and I use an USB Corsair 1500 as my gaming headset. This works fine, except that the headset has the infamous bug where I need to listen with volume at 1 otherwise I would turn deaf.
in anticipation of my next PC, I'd like to upgrade this :

Option A :
- bet on future motherboard onboard audio
- chose the Sennheiser PC-363D (with USB connector)

Option B :
- pick a soundcard (Asus / Creative)
- chose the Sennheiser Game ONE (I prefer velvet cushions)


I would go B if and only if :
- I can use my case front audio connectors
- Jack-sensing works with the front end connectors, so that if I plug headset, the speakers should go mute
- the system remembers volume settings for headset / speakers
- it just works (as it does today), ie bringing the soundcard doesn't create a mess with drivers, etc...

I'd go with option B.. Kick your ass and collect $200.. Sorry, that was a quote from My Cousin Vinny. Couldn't pass it up.. tongue.gif

The Asus Raid DLX will have everything you want. Plus you can switch between Headphones and speakers with a click of the volume dial.

I personally have the Beyerdynamics DT770 Pro 80's. I know they will sound better than the Game one's. Get a Zalman mic dirt cheap. That's what I did and it works awesome.

Another thing I noticed about the Raid DLX is the bass doesn't have close to the authority that my Razer Barracuda has. I don't know if its because it doesn't have an LFE channel or you can't set the crossover for bass. I have the crossover for bass off on the Barracuda and with my DT770's it hits hard. I doubt I'll keep the DLX, I just see no benefit besides the control pod and I don't find it very useful either. Even with the bass boost all the way up, it just doesn't hit very hard.

Niche Market in a nutshell. It's not like a monitor or a CPU that you need to have one to use your computer.

That's true. I sent the Raid DLX back and picked up a ZXR last night. Don't think you can go wrong with either,but the ZXR definitely has more bass. I think they are pretty comparable cards. I think surround sound wise they are pretty close also. I really dislike Dolby Headphone. Either one of these cards will drive pretty much any pair of headphones. Its just amazing how well my Razer Barracuda holds up against cards today. It sounds as good as either of those cards. If it had better surround sound and not Dolby headphone plus a headphone amp, this card would be easily as good as the other 2.
