Will Fiio E17 DAC Headphone amplifier work with Creative X-Fi Titanium HD via spdif?
This is my first time trying to do a good headphone setup for my computer, so take it easy on me. I currently have a X-Fi Titanium HD soundcard, which has a digital output. Was wondering if I plug that spdif cable from the soundcard output into my Fiio E17's input, will I get better quality sound as oppose to plugging my headphone jack straight into the soundcard itself? Does that make sense?
FYI: My current head phone is Sennheiser HD 518.
Thank you in advance.
