Ok, so I have the ultrasone HFI 580's. I only have onboard audio. No DAC or amp. I see that the Fiio e10 is a dac/amp combo, but it says it only does 96000 Hz / 24 bits. While my onboard can do 196000 Hz / 24 bits. So, will I get better sound quality? Becuase when I put my headphones at 196000, they sound so much more clear than at 96000. Will this be a downgrade going to the new dac or should i stay with onboard? I have the newest realtek drivers ( $180 newest motherboard ) Computers only 2 months old.
