Computer-Driven Audio - Is it Superior to Optical-Based CD P

I've been running the line out from me M-Audio over to the Jolida hybred amp.

Running a 26 foot siamese copper RCA interconnect from Turntable preamp over to line in. Line out uses a 27 foot audioquest RCA interconnect.

Tis nice to sample some of the vinyl to 96k 24bit wavs. I've been shopping at for the goodies. They have the occasion new release there as well. Sarah McLachlan on 180 gram vinyl for example.

I mainly use my computer as my stereo. Sounds clean enough for me. And then my Ipod for traveling in vehicles.
