But is that over if I'm only use for Spotify which highest quality only 320kbit?

I'm also thinking to take BTR1K but the price is double so I'm thinking do I really need that?

According to quite a number of headphone/speaker makers, the 4.2 sounds better than the 5.0 - of which many new bluetooth-enabled audio still sticks to 4.2.
Wait until the technology is more matured.
4.2 is good enough unless your source is loseless

Hi, am here looking for recommendations.

I am currently using a sound card (Asus Xonar DG) with my Creative Aurvana Live! 2 (PC setup), and I love the Dolby Headphone effect with the rumbling sound on bass (the rumbling effect probably has nothing to do with Dolby Headphone though...).
Been using this setup for years, mostly for music and movie.

Since the Xonar DG is a PCI card (most new PC motherboard doesn't come with PCI slot anymore), so I am looking for an alternative in case I'm upgrading my PC.
Before I go for the Xonar DGX for the PCIe version of it, is there any better suggestion?
External AMP/DAC is fine for me but I really like to have similar surround effect of Dolby Headphone.

Thanks in advance.
