streaming digital signal from pc to avr

by anrodtheberserk / September 20, 2013 3:47 AM PDT

I have tons of albums on my pc and want to play them through a Denon 2313 avr. At present I have a splitter cable hooked to my PC audio out connection. I would like to skip the motherboard sound card and use the DAC's on the Denon to process the sound. This means streaming the files in digital format. My PC does not have a HDMI port.
How can I connect my avr to the pc and stream a digital signal to the avr?

I want to stream music from my PC to avr not TV. I need a solution to stream music from a media player in a digital format to avr. I don't really watch much TV.
