Hmm... do you mean output from soundcard through AUX out into MINI system or vice versa?
USB is digital, AUX is (normally) analog ... which path would be the better one .. USB (D/A), AUX (D/A --> A/D --> D/A) or which D/A would be better ... the one found in PC or the other in MINI system?
Sound Card -> USB (Mini System has USB support called "USB Link")
Sound Card -> AUX/Gameport (Gameport is for video game consoles but in reality its the same thing)
which of the 2 is better? like if i continued using the AUX from the mini system to the sound card of my PC, will i notice a difference in SQ if i used the "USB / USB Link" part instead? To me it doesnt sound any different....jw if the USB has any advantages somehow lol.
