I was playing music through my computer to my receiver via analog 5.1 connectors. I actaully got the receiver to light up "clip" on the display which means it is clipping. However the sound level was so quiet. Even when I turned it to nearly inaudible it said it was "clipping". My speakers don't sound any different I don't think. I suppose I could do a sweep to test this. But I would figure the difference would be night and day.
