I bought a Sennheiser GSX 1000 a while back as my first external DAC/amp and it was defective unfortunately. One of the programmable preset buttons didn't work at all. I ended up returning it for a refund and buying the Schiit Fulla 2 instead. I personally found it to sound much cleaner and detailed overall with my HD598s compared to the (defective) GSX 1000 and the X-Fi Titanium PCIe sound card I was using previously. That said, I have since then switched from the Fulla 2 to the Modi Multibit and Vali 2 stack which was yet another noticeable improvement for my tastes.
If your main focus is gaming and you absolutely need the whiz-bang surround processing (or other effects) but don't have any particularly power hungry headphones/headsets, the GSX 1000 may be a good fit for you. Sennheiser states in the spec sheets that the GSX 1000 is recommended for 16-150 ohm headphones. I personally wouldn't recommend the GSX 1000 for audiophiles who want to use higher impedance cans and/or focus on music.
I read the 7.1 on the GSX 1000 is unreal, but also have head its overall clarity isn't on par with some other amps out there (while still better than the Astro Mixamp). With gaming in mind its rated well, but probably not from a music standpoint
