I am from India and I recently joined AV forums. I need your help in setting up my stereo setup.
I have Polk Audio TSi100 speakers which is connected to Astonia SC300 Amplifier (its a local company. Here is the link if you guys need specification of amp Astonia audio ). Amp is connected to PC through 3.5mm to RCA wire. Whenever I listen "Bass I love you" song at high volume (or medium level), I noticed distortion, speakers just cant handle some part of the song. I don't know the exact word (sorry I am kind a noob in sound department). I don't experience such distortion in any other songs even at very high volume.
I need your help in deciding
1. Is it because of my low power amp?
2. or is it because my speaker can't handle such low frequency.
3. I am planning to buy Polk Audio DSW PRO 550 sub, whether this will resolve the issue. If the problem is with amp then I will buy Marantz SR 4023 amp and will add sub later.
4. As I don't have any sound card or DAC for my pc. I wanna buy DAC to improve the quality of the sound coming out of my pc. But for DAC I only have the budget of $200. If you guys can suggest me acceptable DAC in this budget would be great.
Looking forward your response.
