I have recently purchased a set of the Edifier S730 2.1 speakers. I am currently using an old creative X-FI Xtreme music sound card. However, I am planning to change my sound card to the asus Xonar St after reading lots of good review about it but do have some questions.
1) On the edifier manual, it says that "please do no feed powered signal from another amplifier into the input ports of this system", does it mean i can't use the Xonar St with the speakers since the sound card has a built in amp??????
2) If there is no conflict with using Xonar st with the speakers, can i just use a regular RCA cable instead of the RCA TO 3.5MM cable since both the sound card and speakers uses RCA ports.
3) If i don't use headphones, will I really see a difference in my current Creative X-FI Xtreme Music sound card compared to the Xonar ST since a lot of the reviews i read online is all about how it will boost headphone performance.
I do not know too much about speakers and sound card but just always wanted to get the best sound possible out of my computer system. Thanks a lot !!!!
