Aww I missed it :c



I'm runnin a second hand xonar dx 7.1 card and a cheapo 5.1 xonar card been trying everything to mitigate my speaker whine on these studio monitors lol



I'm a speaker addict lol still gotta get speaker stands and route wires for the rears but it is kinda cool to have the side channels pre out from the TV and still have the ability for surround sound from the PC all on the same input using both passive and powered speakers all at once, everything was second hand crap lol

I need to look more often on these give aways

Thanks @ENTERPRISE and OCN!!! When I got the email, I couldn't believe it; I don't win anything. Haha

I set it up, and it sounds beautiful. I replacedmy AudioEngine D1 DAC and using it in conjunction with my AudioEngine A5 speakers. I'm in the middle of buying a home, and when I do, I'm now going to go proper and turn it into a 5.1 setup now.

The addon is really nice quality, and I like the visual of the audio (and it ties to windows). I tried out the headphone port with both a pair of Bose in-ear headphones and a Bose QC35 (I know there is MUCH better, but I used to work for them - don't judge) and it sounded great. The mic I have currently is USB based, but I plan on switching it to something that takes advantage of the XLR connection.

The soundcard install was difficult for my build. I wanted it fit at the bottom, but not enough clearance from 2x 2080 TIs. I made it work at the top. The look of the card is perfect for my setup - I have a white theme and it's perfect.

Verse the D1, I don't hear much of a difference in direct mode. But when using the presets for gaming and different sources, I can personalize it, which is nice, and with games like MW2019 and Battlefront 2, I can hear the difference nicely.

Thanks again OCN!!
