spdif vs 3.5mm output sounds very different 2019-01-27 03:22:53 I recently decided to upgrade my sound setup, so I got a pair of HSU-HB1 speakers as well as a Yamaha RX-V383 receiver (no subwoofer yet but hoping to do that when the budget allows). I'm kind of new to the higher end audio world so please correct me if I use incorrect terminology.Anyway, I was experimenting listening to my music using the dac on the receiver via s/pdif connection vs my computer's sound card via 3.5mm output and noticed a huge difference in some of my music. For example, listening to this song, on the s/pdif connection the audio seems to randomly drop out or otherwise have issues with consistency in its dynamics - around the 2:20 - 2:50 area it is particularly obvious (the audio nearly completely disappears at 2:40 for me). This doesn't happen using my computer's 3.5mm output.Is there any way to go about figuring out why this is? Is it more likely due to the receiver's dac, the computer's sound card, or something else? It's hard for me to tell if this is how the recording "should" sound or if there's something wrong with the s/pdif connection or the receiver's dac.Thanks for any advice!
