If you're using the Fiio E7, it negates the need for the Xonar DX since you'll be using either USB or optical out to the E7. I can't tell you if the STX or the E7 would be the better of the two though.

If you need two headphones at the same time, you'll need a stereo Y-splitter. That will allow you to have two outputs from the same source with the same audio signal. In most cases, you can't have both the back of the sound card and the front panel output at the same time. On Xonar cards, you select one or the other but you can't have both. On X-Fis, the rear is silenced if you have the front plugged in.
