Xonar D2x and BC2

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok guys first I will explain my setup. I am running Win7 64bit, and a Xonar D2X. From the D2X I am running a Phillips fiber optic cable to my Yamaha RXV661 AVR. From there I use my HD555 headphones for all music, movies, and games.

Now to my question(s) I would really like to hear your feedback and advice as to what the best way to set this system up to get the most sound accuracy in Bad Company 2? I want to be able to more or less pin point where people are coming from if they try to knife me or shoot at me. I can set my AVR to receive what ever signal the Xonar sends it. So If I set my Xonar CP to DTS then my AVR displays DTS. If I set it for DDPL then my AVR will display ProLogic...I am looking for tips on the best way to setup the Xonar Control Panal for BC2?
So if you have any advice you wouldn't mind sharing I would appreciate your feedback. TYVM in advanced. I was thinking I would like to add. What would be the best for HiFi music listening using FLAC and Foobar200 ASIO? I mean how should I configure the Xonar CP? Thanks again guys.

Now I am getting irritated!! I downloaded the latest drivers for my sound card, and now I cannot get my sound to work the same as it use to. Sorry if this gets confusing but please bare with me if you think you can help.

BEFORE:
- Default audio device was listed as - Speaker Asus Xonar Audio Device.
Everything worked just fine, Games, Internet (youtube), Teamspeak, media players.
Now with the same setting I can only here my media player (Foobar).
If I want to hear anything else I have to change my default device to Digital out. Doing so make it so I cannot hear Foobar, but can hear internet, and TS.
I can set Foobar to digital out, but at this point I am completely bypassing my sound card, making the sound card a 170 dollar paper weight as it is a pass through.

I want to be able to use my Xonar CP to adjust game settings. I dont mind that Foobar is pass through but I do not want the internet, games and TS to be pass through digital output. If I have been clear than can some one help me with this issue. If not then please ask for more details and I will get back ASAP. Sorry if I am not being clear I am just frustrated.

Also make sure you set the sound settings to 'Hi-fi' in BC2 itself as well. For music listening, Volume at 76% and 'HF' mode.
