Connecting Schiit Bifrost to a PC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello, I have a Schiit Asgard 2 and need some help, because I plan on getting a Bifrost and don't know the best way to connect it to my computer.  I was looking into buying a sound card and connecting with an optical cable, but most that I find have built-in amps and I don't know if that will degrade the sound quality.  I would say not too expensive, because I can't see why it would cost too much to simply connect the bifrost but quality is my main concern if you have a strong argument.  Any suggestions will be appreciated.

When you connect using S/PDIF (optical or coaxial) to a sound card, the sound card's headphone amplifier is bypassed, along with any other analog audio output on the sound card.

The Asus Xonar DG is only $18 after mail in rebate, comes with optical output and Dolby headphone.

If your motherboard has a S/PDIF (optical & coaxial) output, you can connect the Bifrost to it also.
