Hi folks, I'm hoping to get some advice in regards to an excellent quality sound card for my media center. I'm currently using a M-Audio 192 coax into a Schiit Bifrost dac. I'd like to upgrade my sound card and seem to see a couple of popular options. Option 1- purchase the USB Uber upgrade and pickup a SOTM USB PCI card. Option 2- Pickup a Lynx AES 16 and run coax out to the Schiit Bifrost dac. Here's my question- Will a SOTM USB card connected to the Schitt Bifrost via usb provide less jitter and sound better than a Lynx AES 16 connected coax to the Bifrost? Both options will be using good quality USB and Coax cables to connect between the cards and the dac. I will also be using JRiver Media Center 18, soon to upgrade to 19 when stable version is released, I usually stay away from Beta releases. Thanks for everyone's time and opinions, I'm tired of trying to research this to death and want to start listening to my music files and know I have a quality solution in place.
