Default Using Virtuoso with a DAC/AMP

Hi! Just got my Virtuoso SE, and loving it.

Not long before, I'd bought a Schiit Fulla DAC/AMP. I was curious if there's any way for me to use this little guy while also having the ability to have Icue still recognize the headphones for EQ purposes and such.

I'm pretty good with computers, but just starting to learn more about the audio side of things. Any advice is appreciated!

Unfortunately you can't. EQ presets and surround mode only works if the headphones are plugged in to your PC via Slipstream or USB-C and the audio is output by them.

You can still have ICUE recognise the headphones with external DAC and have the ability to change RGB. You just need to plug in 3.5mm jack to your external DAC and to your headphones and then plug in the USB-C to your PC and to your headphones, the con will be that you have two wires coming from your headphones.

People who get a external DAC with Corsair headphone normally go with a high-end one so they can adjust EQ on the DAC itself.
