Do you use downloaded music or streaming services? Do you buy it...or.....not (sorry if discussing is not aloud but a straight answer without explanation should be fine)? Currently i just use streaming at home, I have a few songs i did rip off grooveshark with a little program which didnt work well, but most sound fine. I use pandora the most but have benn told its bit rate isnt good, but it has the best layout to me and is easiest since i have used it for so long Also, how big of a difference do all those boxes (new to this, AMP, want to say DAC?) make in the music compared to the straight motherboard output? I dont have room for an audio card and dont see the stuff being worth it. Currently debating getting a FiiO E6 which will also be used with my iPad which will be the main music source (I know it's not the same as the bg ones but will mostly be used on the go). Not sure on my headphones yet, getting a deal and waiting for the options.
