Can you help me compare Amp/Dac ?

more_vert
I have Beyerdynamic dt 990 premium 600 ohms. I use them for music, game, and movies. I know an Amp/Dac would be nice. Question is this: Has anyone tested the creative labs Sound blasterx G6, and if yes, how does it sound for audio quality ? I know that for gaming its ok, but for movie and music is it good ? Does it compare to Fiio e10k or any other Dac/Amp I keep hering about for about the same price ?

I have the SBX G6 for while. I can only compare it with SB ZxR and SXFi. I think it's good. I found it can be easily interfered, possibly because of the plastic casing. I put it on top of the Intel Nuc and could hear constant static noise.

I never used Realtek. But I think G6 sounds better than ZxR. I suppose ZxR should be better than Realtek, which makes G6 better than Realtek I guess. However, G6 doesn't really have multichannel output (Dolby Digital or DTS). Therefore, I use G6 for music and ZxR for gaming. I bought G6 for portability, which can be used with a laptop and mini PC. Also, I never used high impedance headphones. I have SONY MDR-7520, MDR-7550, and Audeze LCD-MX4, all used on low volume (~40) and low gain.

An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem. Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between...
