  1. I wanted to upgrade my standard speakers with a decent 2.1 system and after lots of research, finally narrowed down to Swans(HiVi) M50W and currently sitting on my table which are connected to my on-board sound card (Realtek ALC 892) it also has Coaxial and Optical S/PDIF out ports. I am very much disappointed with the performance, so decided to change the source and narrowed down to go with a new sound card or with DAC. This are my narrowed down list Sound Card upgrade: Asus Xonar Essence STX DAC upgrade: O2+ODAC RevB Audio GD NFB-15 Modi 2 Uber HiFime UH1 384Khz USB DAC, headphone amplifier and I2S/DSD interface FiiO E17K Usage is 45 Music:45 Movies:10 Gaming. I also use head phones to listen music and watch movies especially at nights. I need experts over here to guide me to get best with in my budget that I have narrowed down or any other advice will help. NOTE: I live in Bangalore India, All of the above need to be sourced in as they are not available locally except the STX and E17K Thanks in advance
