So I keep coming back to my office rig again and again. I havent hooked up my dad's old Yamaha reciever yet so this may be a moot point, but:
Which will have a better DAC, a sound card (such as the HT Omega Claro), or a reciever (such as my Denon 1610).
I am asking now as if the Yammy powers the P162's better than the Denon I might be selling the Denon off. But my current soundcard is pretty crappy (Supreme FX) as it came with the motherboard and I would have to use a 3.5mm to 2 RCA adaptor to connect the Yammy (analog connections only). I have a feeling that would degrade the sound something awful, so I am looking at dedicated soundcards w/ analog out.
Any and all thoughts appreciated...
