On my PC I’m using the Grace m900 DAC/Headphone Amp with beyerdyamic DT 1770 Pro Headphones. This combo with FxSound is amazing for listening to music. A little pricey, but I figured since I’m running an audio company I should probably get a better sense of what expensive audio sounds like :grin:

Simple but still effective - old 2.1 Logitech X-230 speakers and Creative Sound Blaster Z.

I am using Sony’s CAS-1, Sound Blaster’s G6, HD660s, WF-1000xm4, Galaxy Buds, and JBL’s sound bars.
I’m thinking about a DAC/headphone amplifier, but I don’t know which one to buy.

Honestly how do you like the Theta? Ppl talk bad about True 7.1 but its always seemed like the next step and current pinnacle of gaming headsets.

Headphones:
Bose QuietComfort 35-II
Speakers:
Bowers & Wilkins MM-1


I’m currently using the Ifi Zen DAC v2 w/HDVA 600 AMP driving HD600/660s/800s. I’ll stream from Amazon Music :notes:

I am currently using the Sony WH-1000XM5 BT Headphones.

I sometimes connect via my USB Bluetooth Chip, but usually, I plug it into the headphone jack.

I am also using the Dolby Atmos app from the Microsoft Store.

The latest & greatest! :dizzy:

So in what way does this enhance your audio, apart from the 3D effect?

I use it not to improve the sound, but because of a broken connector on the sound card. I inserted a bad jack 3.5 and the contacts were damaged, it is not entirely acceptable to repair it.

The answer to the question about the sound setting.

Sometimes I “improve” the sound to expand the sound (speaker), for some music I use the surround setting. I use the classic control panel, there is a stylized panel. Unlike fxsound, I can’t use presets, but the number of sliders makes it easy to set up.

There is an equalizer, but I prefer not to change its settings in the player, in the creative settings and in fxsound (individual band settings).

This is my setup, where I’m sitting right now (and practically all day every day).

Yes, it is a laptop on a box. :crazy_face:
