    Hi konaing,

    are you having an issue with your sound card & edifier S530 ?

    why need a receiver?since your sound card & speakers can be
    connected via digital connections as you want to have a loss-less
    sound reproduction.

    then it only shows that even having a digital amp,will not
    compensate with your analog speakers.

    1. your S530 has a built-in amplifier.
    2. if ever you have a digital amp,no way to connect it via digital connections.
    3. even it does,you might have a problem matching the wattage and empedance.

    a). though you have an 8 inch subwoofer,it is still a PC speaker which i believe
    3.0 to 3.8 ohms or so.
    b). amplifiers normally have 4 to 8 ohms & up to 16 ohmic values.

    so,you dont want to blow up your SUB(s),right?

    if you really care for a good sounding through digital connections
    (PC to AMP to speakers),likewise maximizing the functionality of
    your sound card.a digital amplifier and a set of good speakers will

    on your sound card's sound manager,try the settings/configuration.
    try to find if you can see the SPDIF connection switch,normally it has
    a radio button or a check box and tick it.or something that says all
    about digital connections.apply the settings and try the sound,
