I am looking to get myself a pair of LSR 305s for both listening to and producing music. How exactly do you set a pair of studio monitors? I know I need a dual 1/4 inch to 3.5mm cable to connect both monitors to the jack on the back of the PC. My confusion lies in the interface, my onboard Dell XPS 8700 motherboard (Realtek) audio might be a pitfall for powerful speakers such as these, if I need a DAC for the LSRs how do I hook that up? Would a sound card be enough? I am looking at the Audioengine D1 DAC or the Soundblaster Z Sound Card. If anyone who has hooked up studio speakers can explain step by step how you hook all this together and what equipment they use it would be an immense help so I can find the rest of the parts I need for my audio upgrade.
