I have a Xonar Essense STX and Sennheiser PC 360. At first the card seemed not to be working and I wasn't impressed. Then suddenly, somewhat out of the blue it starts working and it is amazing! I tweaked some things in the Asus Audio Center and now it sounds phenomenal. It's a mystery why it started working (I think at some point I switched back from 10ms to 6ms after reading something on a site). If anyone can give a clue as to why it would be a help.
Anyway, what I want to know is should I go from 2 channels to 8 channels for my PC 360? Would it sound better? Worse? Hurt the headset? What? Also, how do I turn on the equalizer. It seems to turn on when it likes and then disappear just as quickly.
