Reading the STX's description, it states it has virtual 7.1. However, its cheaper cousin, the Xonar D1, states it has just simply put, "7.1".

I bought the Razer Tiamat TRUE 7.1 headphones, so I would like an Asus audio card with true 7.1.

Help!

Man you bump way too much. Read the d@mn rules before bumping n00b. As far as your question your not going to get "True" 7.1 from headphones simply because unless they can squeeze 8 drivers in a small space your not going to have "True" 7.1 only emulated.

I need to know now. I am on the verge of buying, and I am getting no responses. Any answers are needed as quickly as possible.

Sorry for bumping, but this is a exception.

Razer Tiamat 7.1 has 10 drivers.

Does the Asus Phoebus deliver 7.1 ?

The STX doesn't support 7.1 analog outputs. Its designed specifically for headphones and very HQ stereo speakers. The D1/DX does support 7.1 analog outputs.

It does support 7.1 output. Still really a waste not to use that amp though...

For analog 7.1 out, I'd actually recommend the D2(X) over the Xense/Phoebus.
