The Xonar Essence STX


Posted on Feb 5, 2014

This is where the fun begin - the sound is hmm. `organic`. Everything seems to smooth a bit compare to LME49720, a very subjective word. `musical` Also I hear more dynamics. Listening is best at extra high gain. Upon switching from LME49720, I actually hear a high volume on LME49720 and had to tone down, and switch to high gain for LME49860. Howe

ver lately I have switched back to extra high gain. I would be very interested in trying out discrete OP-AMP, but they are overly expensive, and defeat purpose of going for this sound card (PRICE!). If I invest in an AMP (which I`m planing to do), I might. However if any can find cheaper discrete OP-AMP below 20ish do let me know :) I would be very interested in trying out discrete OP-AMP, but they are overly expensive, and defeat purpose of going for this sound card (PRICE!).

I`m basically in the same situation as you, I have a pair of K701 that I run straight out of my Essence ST and I`mplanning oneventually buying an external amp since I feel as if the Xonar`s amp isn`t really doing the K701justice. I do think theEssence+K701-combosounds amazing, but I would like a littlewarmer/softer sound and a bit more bassimpact. Before I buy an external ampthough, I`m also gonna tryout some different op-amps :) I`ve ordered a pair of LME49720 that I`m eager to test :)Hopefully they`ll be arriving tomorrow!
