I just bought a pair of Audioengine A5+ speakers. I am planning to use them with my tv and laptop (Sony VGN-AR850E).
Right now, the speakers are connected to my laptop with the mini-jack cable audio cable. Also, my computer has an onboard soundcard with Realtek Digital Output (Optical) and I wanna connect my speakers to the computer using an optical cable.
Do you think that if I use an optical cable, I will get a better performance ?
If I'll get better performance, I will definitely connect them with optical cable. However, I need a DAC for that. Which DAC wıll work best with audioengine A5+, any recommendations? ( my budget is under $100)
