I am getting a SMSL Q5 Pro DAC/AMP

I have a Gigabyte Gaming-7 mobo with a SPDIF and that "DAC-UP" USB, meant for cleaner signal.

Which one should I use? 2.1 channels don't benefit from the DSP chip (that from what I read can only be used through the SPDIF, please correct me if I am wrong), so would using either be the same??

Awesome, thanks for that :)

Now I can plug both USB and SPDIF to my amp and switch back and forth easily.

Maybe I'll try and get some HiRes files to take advantage of that.
