I've read a lot of good things about the juli@ on here and it makes me wish I would have known about head-fi.org earlier. When I built my current pc, I mostly built it for gaming so I got an xfi. However, now I mostly use my pc for listening to music. I currently use foobar, audio creation mode with bit-matched playback, I use the optical out -> MicroStack -> k701's. Compared to my current setup, would the optical out on the juli@ be noticeably different than optical out on xfi? I don't really wanna ask if the juli@ would be noticeably "better" because better is just a matter of opinion. I mostly wanna know if the juli@'s optical out connected to the microstack would sound noticeably different, and in what ways would it be different (if at all)? Thanks!
