Hey Head-fi. I have a old speaker setup from 2007, with a Sony STR-DG510 and to Jamo S 718. They are connected to the amp with 5 meter low price speaker cable each. At the moment I run my sound through a Fiio E10. I've thought about buying an Asus xonar Essence STX, but my motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-H61M DS2, and a full-size GPU. So there is not much room for a soundcard, it will block for the air flow to my GPU i think. Now for my question:
Can i cut my speaker cable and get a improvement there?
Should i instead buy High quality cable?
should i run my sound through the onboard soundcard?
Or will it do something bad to my GPU if i buy Asus Xonar STX?
