I have my pc hooked up to my hdtv via hdmi and also to my older 5.1 surround sound system, a yamaha 5140. I like the sound plays all my music well doesn/t matter if its a flac or cd it just sounds good.
That said I plug in my headphones into the 5140 not the pc itself and so I can get some nice LOUD sound that is nice and would like to get something of similar off my wife's pc.
Do I need to get her a audio amp for this? My complaint on her pc isn't quality but rather low volume and I have done and gone around all the boosting I can off windows 7 and the like?
Are there audio amps for pc that would do the same but not require a 5.1 sound system amp?
