will a media hub destroy my sound quality?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

i currently have a pretty cheap media hub



i have it plugged into my xonar dx and use AT-M50's

right now i have a really cheap 2.1 Altec Lansing setup and was wanting to up upgrade to a nice set of speakers. Thinking about Swan M10's (want to stay around that price but under 200 for sure)

I really like the hub since it has volume control and can easily switch between speakers and headphones but will the hub have any effect on my sound quality or if i plug everything into the xonar is there another way to switch from headphones to speakers without switching the plugs on the sound card???

Yes it will hurt your sound quality, how much I'm not sure.

i dont really notice the difference with the headphones since the only time i use them is when gaming but im afraid i will notice a difference with a nice set of speakers and the more i read about the M10's more more i feel it hard to pass on them for the price!!
