RE: dac or sound card? help please

BOTH surely?

 

ideally with optical out from the PC to the DAC, failing that digital.

 

I have that setup.

 

One thing i am still thinking about tho is what if i get a 5.1 amp?

 

if i do then my old, but good, DAC will be useless as that only outputs analog stereo (I think) anyway the point is make sure you can get the 5.1 from the dac to a future proofed amp.
