My System Specs


I don't think anyone runs non-amplified speakers from sound cards.

The setup would go like this instead:

Sound card -- (analog or digital) --> Receiver w/Amp -> Speakers/Monitors
Sound card -- (analog or digital) --> Receiver -> Pre-amp -> Speakers/Monitors

and at that point you could, as argued in this thread, just go with onboard and SPDIF to the receiver.
