    Virtual 7.1 Surround Sound processing in Headphones

    Not that I notice. I'm playing with it right now and I don't feel like they are muffled. Now of course I can't really do a fast A/B test with it because you have to stop the audio, shut down Redscape (since it takes exclusive control), switch Windows to output directly to the RME and then fire...

    Virtual 7.1 Surround Sound processing in Headphones

    So where do you change the strength? All I see in the app is the ability to turn it on, battle mode or off. I think the pictures are done fairly well, I had my girlfriend take them so no I wasn't doing them myself. Also I feel like the effect should still be at least somewhat convincing in...

    Virtual 7.1 Surround Sound processing in Headphones

    I picked up a Soundblaster X4 today and... so far I'm not impressed with the virtualization. I'll have to give it some more time and testing but I'll probably send it back. The three big issues I have as opposed to Redscape: 1) The surround just isn't very convincing. It does a decent job of...

    Virtual 7.1 Surround Sound processing in Headphones

    I've never had one built in to a headset, with the exception of the Audeze Mobius, that was worth a crap. In terms of software my current favourite is Redscape. It is pretty convincing with just the software itself, more than most others, but I find that software just can't do a great job...

    Anyone have a suggestion for an audio player for Windows?

    I'll have a look at both Foobar and JRiver. Do either of them have a way to get a compact interface like Winamp offers? That's not a deal breaker, but I rather like it.

    Anyone have a suggestion for an audio player for Windows?

    I've been a long time Winamp fan, because I like the tiny interface that sits up in the corner of my monitor, but lets face it: It isn't getting developed anymore. So I really should find something newer. Thus I'm looking for recommendations. Requirements are that it can play MP3, FLAC and WAV...

    Virtual 7.1 Surround Sound processing in Headphones

    I really wish that companies were better about supporting their products in this area. It seems like they all just kinda of up in smoke. I don't know if the A16 is on sale anymore, you certainly can't just buy it even on their website. Waves still sells Nx (I actually backed this one on kick...

    Best headphones for Rock/Metal under $2K

    The RME is a headphone amp. It has a pretty serious amplification stage in it, low noise, high voltage, low impedance, etc. Unless it can't push enough power for your phones (which it can) or you can hear noise or something there really isn't anything to improve upon.

    Looking for some headphone advice.

    I'm having to move back to headphones from speakers for the first time in over a decade (moving to an apartment). While I will mourn the loss of my great surround sound setup this is of course an excuse to get NEW TOYS :) I picked up an RME ADI-2 DAC, which is just an amazing unit that I...
