I have just got a Harman/Kardon HK 980 amp. I have a Marantz CD6000 player. My PC has a Creative Labs Sounddlaster X-Fi Xtreme Gamer sound card. I am the product of an Arts faculty and struggle with Ohms law so I am totally useless at anything vaguely electronic.
I want to copy my paid for cds for the car. I use NCH software and usually go from vinyl to amp via aux/AV out to line in.
So, with cd, can I play the cd through the amp and then to line in ? What output should I use ? Is there such a thing as a quality sound card that makes ripping/burning cd's more of a hifi thing ? Am i just wasting my time for use in a car?
Let me know please, I can handle rejection if it saves me money and/or grief. In return I'd gladly answer any questions you have about genocide. History is fun !
Thanks in advance,
