next upgrade on PC to speaker

Recommended Posts

my first post here, I enjoy flac files output to my Pioneer HT receiver into my homebuilt DIY speaker. I use Turtlebeach microadvantage USB card using optical cable to my Pioneer.

 

Since other components are "permanent" can I expect a sound improvement by upgrading my TB USB card?

 

thanks,

Providing your usb turtle provides bitperfect output (verify by playing a dts stream in your music player) I don't see a significant quality upgrade for you except upgrading speakers or going pre/pro with a separate amp.

Start your regular music player software (Foobar2000, Mediaplayer, Winamp etc)

 

Download a DTS music/radio clip.

Play the file in your music player and watch your DTS indicator lit up or if the speakers produce unbearable noise (not bitperfect output).
