I am beginning to look into updating my rig, and one of the things that has bugged me about the internal audio is the lack of any global equalization options. (Thanks for dumbing down the drivers realtek smile.gif ) Since I am not doing any kind of audio production I want to have everything tuned to my tastes in one central location.

Looking around though it seems as though software equalization is not as common as I would have expected. Currently I am driving a set of KSC-75's and a Pioneer SX-626 hooked to two Technics SB-L72's for gaming music listening. I would like to stay in the <$200 range. I had kind of wanted something like a ESI Audio Juli@ but I would also Like to avoid buying extra hardware.

If anyone has any opinion I would be happy to hear it.


In addition if I am better off with an external stereo EQ, would I be able to hook a multi-channel headphone amp like the Behringer HA400 to it and feed to the stereo and headphones or would this be a bad idea. (I plan on buying one eventually anyway, just want somebody to say this is a horrible idea if it is before I kill something)

Those look perfect. Aside from not having 7.1 which I don't really care about, is there any reason being a gamer to not go this direction vs a consumer oriented card?

While I would like to build up a pro-audio setup in the future for audio recording, for now how do I get into the world of line level I/O? Am I best off getting something like a XENYX 502 to take my mic up to line level output to the stereo and a headphone amp? (Right now I only have a cheap mic for gaming so that seems way overkill for now)

Or should I just use something like the XENYX on the output side to get a headphone out and speaker out and just use the integrated audio for now on the mic to avoid needing to buy even more equipment (though if you know of a nice cheap little thing to get a line in that would work also)
