There is a reason for Audiophile grade equipment being so costly, and you cant compare it to cheap multimedia equipment like the z5500
anyway, the intention on this thread is not to persue audiophile grade.
it's called getting optimum results for your audio setup.
since it cost way cheaper than getting yourself an expensive amp + speakers + sub.
one can learn to truly appreciate something if he knows its limit and capabilities.
and by doing this mod i learned the limits of my own setup.
i keep telling ppl i'm not much of an audiophile... not at all to be exactly.
if i was, i would not buy X-Fi z5500 in the first place.
i'd rather buy Onkyo Soundcard + Yamaha RXV1500 Reciever + Quad speakers + Yamaha YST SW800 Sub.
