Audio Setups

Recommended Posts

Stock on-board sound card on my Asus Sabertooth Z77 until I feel like I want to spend the cash on a external sound card (I know I want to but I should keep pinching the penny). Splitting the audio to some old Logitech 2.1 speakers and Sennheiser HD 215s. Will probably upgrade to a Xonar DX or something in the future.

7.1 Channel Onboard audio (thinking of getting a sound card)

Logitech Z506 5.1 channel speakers

Corsair Vengeance H1100 Headset

I was thinking about getting those speakers myself. How do they sound?

Actually, not to shabby. However, the extra speakers get in the way and all the long cables get to be a pain. For about the same price, I'd recommend thses speakers http://bit.ly/12rW5yF I know they're what Linus always recommends and I've heard lots of good things about them.

Asus Xonar ST

Sennheiser HD600 headphones

That is all you need. Absolutely amazing sound quality. Now that I have bought open-ear headphones, I don't see myself ever going back. I love these things.

Excellent choice! :)
