I'm looking at upgrading my onboard soundcard. I'm stuck between the Asus Xonar DX, or the Asus Xonar D2X. Both sound cards got amazing reviews, and I'm sure they are both an improvement above onboard sound, but I'm not sure if spending more than double the coin (65 vs 165) is worth it?
currently I use an optical output to connect my computer to my PC. I use a denon amp that has Burr Brown DAC's in it. I understand that one of the main differences between these cards is those Burr Brown DACs. Well is it redundant to have a soundcard with burr browns and an amp with burr browns?
