Hey all,

Let's say I want to connect my sound card to an external DAC/Amp and I connect it via optical fiber.

I currently have 2 such sound 'cards', one is onboard ALC1152 and the other is a Xonar DG.

Just wanted to check, if I connect the external DAC to Xonar DG, would the 'origin' sound be controlled by Xonar's drivers? As in if I enable virtual surround, Dolby or do mixing to my sound, I do it via Xonar's on software?

Just wanted to check if DAC/Amp are a standalone device that can do sound mixing, or if Xonar itself is doing the mixing and the external DAC is merely just converting the end result.

Thanks!
