I am not a super audiophile, but I do like my music (Prog Rock) clean. I work many hours, into the wee hours of the morning, in my downstairs office and would like to have a GOOD sound come out of my laptop workstation. Don’t care much for headphones. My (extensive) music collection is in AIFF, ALAC, WAV, FLAC or DSD formats. In my car I use DVD-As, so I would like to replicate the experience in my office, if I can. I do want to keep my home theater and music listening separate. 5.1 is OK.
