Need advise on DAC (Dragonfly/Fiio E17) with Alienware desktop.
Firstly, thanks for reading my query and for all the informative posts here on this forum.
I have the following setup:
Desktop: Alienware Aurora ALX with Creative Soundblaster X-Fi Platinum
AV Receiver - Yamaha RX-V773
Speakers - Boston Acoustics Soundware XS 5.1 SE
Earphones: Shure SE 535 and Westone UM2
Desktop is connected to AV Receiver via Optical cable (Qed QE3010 1m Performance TOS-TOS Optical Lead) for audio and HDMI (Audioquest Pearl HDMI) for video.
Media types: HD movies/Bluray/DVDs/MP3 (mostly 320kbps)/FLAC
Budget: Upto GBP300
Question: Would it make a significant difference in the sound quality if I invest in a DAC like Dragonfly or FiiO E17 to add to my current setup?
Thanking in anticipation.
