I have an Astro A40 + Mixamp pro (gen 1).

I've heard that the Creative Sound Blaster Z and the Creative Sound Blaster X-fi titanium fatal1ty professional series sound cards are good for the Astro mixamp pro, both have Dolby Digital Live (DDL).

Which sound card should i get?

What are you using the sound card have? What are the specs of your computer?

Modern motherboards have mid-range sound cards built in. Most PC enthusiasts today use the integrated sound in their motherboard.

Im using a creative sound blaster x-fi surround 5.1 pro external sound card.

This is my pc specs:

Gigabyte H170M-D3H

INTEL core i5-7500

8GB ram

Nvidia GTX 1060 3G

1TB WD BLUE

EVGA 500W PSU

 

The motherboard I have does not have an optical port, it cannot be used with my astro headset with the mixamp pro, so I have to use my old sound blaster x-fi surround external sound card for mysetup.
