I went back to the stock op amps and really like the sound.

All that being said, the STX is not a replacement for a proper audio setup. If I were you I would step down to some 598s which are still awesome, but way cheaper and put the difference towards a custom water loop, second monitor or save it towards next gen hardware.

Just my 2c
My HD800s embarrass my old 595s on the Xonar STX...
