  1. Hello All, New to the forum, hope this is in the right place. I am trying to come up with the best Amp for my PC gaming setup. What I want to do it to cut out having to have a digital signal come out of my PC. I am currently using a Soundblaster Z. I have Toslink going to a Pioneer Elite 5.1 thats 10+ years old and then out to 2 M&K speakers for FL FR and then JBL Control 1 for center RL+RR. I am using a powered Sub from Aperion. What I would like to do is have an amp that can take the individual analog signals from my sound card and pass them out to my speakers. I will need some control over gain for each channel, but not much. My plane was to get a multi-room amp and just have it push sound out to all my speakers letting my soundcard perform all of the signal processing for positional audio and such. My total budget for the amp and extra cables is around 1000.00. I was thinking of getting either of these amps. Has anyone else tried this before? My thoughts are I upgrade my amp very rarely, but my PC gets a new sound card much sooner. Please any thoughts on other options or if this will even work would be GREAT! Also do they make some type of mixer I could use between my sound card and amp to control levels?
