You really only need the dac/amp CTH if you find that the on-board audio is not that "clean", for the most part. Also if the onboard audio has interference and stuff like that then an external dac is your answer. Also, if you do find that you need the dac, get a standalone dac and stack it with your CTH. I have a CTH and a Schiit Modi 2U stacked on top. Getting a standalone dac is better imo in case you will be buying other amps in the future.

I don't agree at all, going from my motherboard's sound to a dedicated sound card and then to a desktop one really makes a huge difference. A simple $100 DAP like a Topping E30 or a Schiit Modi is clearly enough at that matter though.
