Hello there people! I am very glad I have found a forum that I can ask a few questions about my first attempt to build a hi fi system! So,my source of music will be my desktop.My soundcard is an auzentech X-Meridian 2g using the analog output of the card. The speakers that I will propably use are the q acoustics concept 20. I have looked up plenty of amps like marantz,arcam and rotel,but the nad d 3020 have made a very nice impression on me because of its inovative tech and becaouse it is very beautiful for a desktop. But considering the fact that I dont really know a lot about ''digital hybrid'' amps I have some questions. I know that the d3020 has multiple digital inputs so I could connect it weth my pc threw usb or optical cable.I really dont want to waste the soundcards dac and analog feuters becaouse that is the reason I bought it on the first place.I know that the amp has an analog conection too but what I dont really know is that if that would be the best way to benefit from the amp.Does the ''digital amp'' means that it will converse the analog singal from my soundcard to digital again and then re-converse it to analog or the rca conection will by pass the dac of the amp as it does in all the other amps.And if I do that...will I be loosing all the sound quality benefits that the amp has to offer? Bottom line...is this amp a good choice for an analog conection or I sould be searching for something else instead? Thank you in advance for your help!
