Jriver on PC with old sb030 Audigy 2 zs card- line level analogue out to pioneer seperates amp to classic pioneer 3 way cs363 full range speakers.
It's not because of PC noise levels, it just sounds much tighter, clearer and more musical.
I'd never have dreamed my wolfson equiped samsung Dap with Neutron would be able to compete, especially with the double amping going on via headphone out.
Anyone else had similar findings? Is my old audigy 2zs sound card really that bad or is this to be expected?
