I am presently running a pair of Aeon Flow Closed from my SoundBlaster AE-5. I am looking into potentially upgrading to a proper AMP/DAC combo. I am newer to the hi-fi scene, so please go easy on me.
- Would I just use the line out plug on the soundcard to something like a Schiit Jotunheim? Will this still make use of the sound card's 3D EQ settings etc?
- Do I need a DAC coming from the line out? The AE-5 has a decent sabre DAC, so perhaps I could spend more on a higher end amp?
