    Default Asrock Z87 Fatal1ty Killer and Purity Sound

    I just picked up the Fatal1ty Killer for a new build and waiting for it to ship.

    I did have a question about the Purity Sound.

    Do I need to use the Headphone in jack to use the Purity Sound? If I use a USB headset, will that bypass the Purity Sound chip?

    A picture is worth a thousand words:

    If your USB headset has a DAC and amplifier in it, then it would be using a digital signal for the audio, and not use the Purity sound.

    Yep, I did see that pic and figured the USB would use it's own DAC, but wanted to be sure. Thanks for a clarification!
