Dumb question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So with a portable DAC/AMP it doesn't matter what laptop sound card you have, right?

 

Right now I have a MisterX HP DAC/Amp and Denon D2k. Was thinking of upgrading the amp, but just wanted to make sure whatever I get won't be limited by whatever sound card is on my laptop.

No it does not matter. Long as you buy DAC/Amp you're bypassing the onboard audio.
