G'day, mates, nice to find you.
While trying not to start another holywar 'bout headphones itself, I'm interested in your choices of audio source. I personally spend most of my time at work, so relatively old Terratec Aureon 5.1 PCI is all I have for now. At least it can power my Grado SR-125 well enough for a workplace.
But for some time now I suspect these cans needs a better couple - I hear background noise passed through tracks' silent parts, and worse. Looking for card with better caps I have found cheap enough M-Audio Revolution 5.1 (I do not see any noticable advantages in 7.1 version, especially for headphone use :)). Looks pretty cool - separate headphone jack and all that.
So what do you use, and what you have to say 'bout this one?
