Computer Sound Card

more_vert
I'm getting a new computer and am wondering if it is worth investing in a special sound card. I currently use Sennheiser 598's and HIFIMAN HE-400I's which I plug into my Fulla Schiit (such a great name). Would getting a special sound card improve anything (and if so what cards do you recommend) or am I already able to get the most out of my cans in my current setup?
Thanks!

I went with a small fanless pc for listening. If I did it over, with options< pcie slot. I would look at an upgraded usb card to get a clean signal out to a dac. These crux are even remote power ready and have on/off power select, nice. Forget an internal sound card upgrade, noisy shit storm in there, whatever you put in...

Internal sound cards pick up tons of interference from the rest of the PC's parts. Best to keep the sound far away from computers and their noisy power supplies.

I use a no-more-sold theatron agrippa with a sennheiser headphone and foobar2000 on flac files.... I changed the 6 opamp... Great sound https://www.materiel.net/carte-son/club-3d-theatron-agrippa-dts-31175.html À lot cheaper than high end devices but same sound.

Well. Yes. Asus Essence STX II is probably better but you really don’t need to upgrade.

Nope, a USB is enough... link it to your fulla and enjoy your music (soundcards are dead..)

Best imaging and soundstage headphones for positioning and immersion?
I was looking at He4XX and K7XX mainly, but I was going to use these mostly for gaming and some music, which means overall imaging is the most important, but I also wouldn't want a headphone that's too boring. Thank you for any help. Edit: My previous headphones were Sennheiser G4ME One's, I'd want comparable or better performance.

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...
