I am planning on buying a Rotel Pre/Pro for 2 ch music. What I buy depends on how well the output from a sound card works. I was going to buy the M-Audio 2496 and use the analog output. Then I thought about it. If I got a lil better Rotel. Could get one with digital input and use the Rotels dacs instead of the M-Audio's. If I did this, I may not need to buy the M-audio. I have coaxial out. Any opinions on this. Thanks a lot.
