Hey guys, so I've been looking to get a good portable amp later this year for reviewing, but in the meantime I've been really looking for a good substitute. Since I always write my reviews right at home at the computer, I listen to the test tracks using the PC. However, I thought that the Line-Out's maximum volume for headphones is a little too low. My monitor has an output jack, which I might be able to use, and the output volume was really, really loud (even at about 30%).
So my question is: does Line-Out sound better than HDMI-Out?
My soundcard is a Creative Sound Blaster 5.1VX, while my monitor is a Samsung SMBX2350, if it helps. Thanks in advance for your answers!
