Hey guys, I am totally new here, so if there is any stupid question plz forgive me lol
Currently i am building a desktop hifi in my room. I compared various bookshelf speakers in Bestbuy and I really like Klipsch speakers and Polkaudio subwoofers putting together. They are really capable of producing the sweet high frequency sound and bass sound i want.
I am watching movies 30% and listening to music 70% of my time, including classic, pop and jazz. After little bit research on internet I decide to use these equipments to build my virgin 2.1;
Asus Xonar ST as a DAC $220
Marantz SR4023 stereo receiver as an amplifier second hand for $380 ($500 for new)
Klipsch Reference Series bookshelf rb 61 ii second hand for $350 ($550 for new)
Polkaudio DSWpro 440wi $300
My problems are;
1, Should I use a specific DAC here or ST would just be fine? My budget is really at its maximum for now.
2, As far as I know, Asus ST sound card does not produce a warm sound. And Marantz is a smoothy amplifier. Would this combination produce kind of weird sound or it will make the sound more 'balance'?
3, The Klipsch bookshelf speakers are 100w speakers, and the receiver is 80w*2, should I change the receiver to Marantz MM7025, which is a 140w*2 power amplifier, or 4023 is just fine? For my budget, i could buy Marantz 45/65/80w receiver and 140w power amplifier. (My room is 4*4 only but sometime my speakers will be moved to dining room for party. And MM7025 is statistically better.)
Thx for any ideas.
