Why all the forum hate? SE sites are great for Q&A, which was their design goal, but they're awful for discussion. Forums are for discussion. Use the right tool for the job.

I have a Xonar DG and it really does work. My onboard sound chip picks up a lot of EMI noise, and I'm not talking only-audible-to-audiophiles noise, I mean literally anyone can hear the static. The Xonar eliminates the noise, and drives my Sony MDR-V6's noticeably better than the onboard chip, though not as well as a "real" amp. At work though I use a Behringer MA400 (along with another pair of V6's) which is a steal of an amp for $22, all made out of metal with really nice analog knobs. I used to think the whole headphone amp thing was snake oil but these Sony headphones, which are only about $75, have made a believer out of me. There really is a difference running them amplified.
