software system into Nahimic 2. Moreover, these gaming notebooks come with the
ESS SABRE HiFi audio DAC, allowing gamers or average users to adjust the audio
to higher quality. These features shall get us ready to have a better 4K video
As I am more sensitive to audio quality, I already have a pair of SENNHEISER HD6
MIX headset. With this pair of headset with higher quality and MSI gaming laptop
with ESS Sabre HiFi audio DAC, everything falls into place.

If you plug in the headset and choose the headset AMP, the software will show
the ESS SABRE HiFi logo. You could see the volume control is independent, not
related to internal speakers AMP.
By clicking on the speaker icon, you can now access your device properties which
may be modified.
Furthermore, users could adjust the format of the audio output, sampling rate up
to 192kHz, Bit Rate up to 24bit. This setup could make sure the output level

however the preset EQ for each audio profile is allowed to change in accordance
with personal preference. For instance, the default EQ setting for Music profile
is Flat. But it can be re-selected from any other EQ settings for the Music
profile, and the preference will be saved.

music loaded with low-end action, such as hip-hop, or metal, may sense a lack of
impact with the speakers.
I try to change the sample rate form 44.1 kHz to 192 kHz with Nahimic 2

I found the Bose Companion 2 Series II speakers works best with music, youtube
