Sennheiser GSX 1000 Audio Amplifier!

Well I bit the bullet yesterday and got a new USB Sound card from Sennheiser from Amazon with same day free deliverery and I hooked it up this morning, so far its working and sounds Great, no drivers, have my Audioengine 5+ and my AKG headphones hooked up and you can switch between the 2, it has 4 presets that you can setup, I have one for my speakers, one for gaming 7.1, and another for just music for the headphones. the unit has a big aluminum volume wheel, the controls light up when you hand just near the controls and then dims after your done. I figured Sennheiser would make a unit that would work....lol...here's a short video and a link to the GSX 1000.

Re: Sennheiser GSX 1000 Audio Amplifier!

Thanks guys, well at least this so far hasn't popped on boot up like the Asus one ( I never said anything about it because I liked being able to have both my speakers and headphones plugged in at the same time) and it died which was a blessing, I found this GSX about 2 months after I bought the Asus and I've been eyeing it the whole time! I have a couple cables coming on Wednesday and that should do it. I've been really busy lately with the new puppy and I can't wait to hear this baby in some gaming!

Re: Sennheiser GSX 1000 Audio Amplifier!

Well I think I found the best sound solution for my speakers and headphones, the GTS 1000 for my AKG 7XX headphones and the onboard sound card on my Apex motherboard for the Audioengine 5+ speakers, I switch between the two in windows, I still have everything plugged in and left click the speaker icon in the taskbar and select what ever I want to use. By doing this I get the SupremeFX control panel that comes with the onboard sound card and set the separation and any sound effects for the Audioengine speakers. I still get the use of the Sennheiser for my headphones. The best part the onboard sounds really good and no popping on boot. I hope everything just keeps working the way it is now....LOL
