Am new here. Have been building a system with an Asus computer using J River media player into an Asus Xonar ST sound card. This feeds with an optical cable a Marantz sr7005 driving Klipsh speakers with a 7.1 configuration.
My question is the weak point of my system may be the on board cd player that came with the computer. The system sounds great now (play largely classical and jazz) but I syspect an better cd playerthan the one that came with the computer may improve performance?
