My 12'x10' office is hosting a stereo setup consisting of a AVR (Yamaha htr-5960) and Axiom M22ti speakers and one 8" sub. My computers are hooked to it via digital toslink. I also have an 8" sub. I was on the fence after looking at the Emotiva XDA-2 and mini amp combo.

Did anyone with a similar configuration switched to a dedicated DAC & power amp? did you notice any difference in sound quality. I'm wondering if I could hear any difference. My current system is already loud enough so if there is a change it would be related to the sound quality.

I don't think there is an issue with my current system, I really like what I hear. I'm just wondering if I'm missing something?

thanks!
