Default sound card questions

What would sound better on a sound card with akm dacs:

the akm dacs with good headphones

or

BEHRINGER MS40 40 Watts 2.0 Digital Stereo Near Field Monitors hooked up through optical?

I've been told that if a sound card has excellent dacs, then an optical connection would never sound as good (i.e., dynamic range, distortion,) but that seems kind of odd, so that why I'm asking.

Well aren't we a little impatient this evening. This isn't a 24/7 support forum. This is a community where people pass through every now and then. We aren't all just sitting here waiting for someone to ask a question.

As for your question. In my opinion it's not going to be noticeable either way.
