Closed Astro A40 system, which sound card? Tags: Sound Cards Astro Components Last response: June 5, 2011 1:12 PM in Components Share uhtred June 3, 2011 7:42:07 PM So, I've had my my Astro A40's (MixAmp as well) for about a year and a half now, and now I have finally built a gaming rig! However, I am bummed out because my onboard audio doesn't support DDL. My question is this. Asus Xonar Essence STX or HT Omega Striker? It is important that I retain the ability to use the mic. Would I be able to do this with either sound card? Also, I mostly game and watch some Blu-Rays. I hardly ever listen to music on my rig. EDIT: I forgot to mention that I am, of course open to suggestions as well! More about : astro a40 system sound card uhtred June 5, 2011 12:34:25 PM What about the Auzentech Forte X-Fi 7.1?
