Hi. Current setup:
Edifier R2800 with spdif and RCA inputs.
Edifier R1900TII with RCA input.
Beyerdynamics DT 770 Pro 80 ohm headphones.
All of these are ‘’ powered’’ with Asus Xonar Essence STX II PC internal sound card. I can stream music from spdif and RCA outputs at the same time so both speaker systems play at the same time (for my ears together they sound beautiful) and overal sound quality is decent.
Question: Is it woth it to upgrade to external dac-amp to stream music from all devices? Will it be clearly noticable difference against STX II? There are not many dacs with spdif outputs and or 2x RCA outputs, also powerful amp is needed for 80 ohm headphones. Budget is about 400 eur. Recommendations? Thanx.
