The best way:

Probably not what the OP needs, but the Audinate AVIO USB-Dante adapter is another great tool for getting audio from a PC.

Hey guys,

In our church we have a projection pc which we need to get sound to the sound desk. Currently somebody has run a 25m 3.5mm jack cable, but it sound terrible! What would be the best option to improve this?

The AVIO Analog output adapter would let you run audio from the computer through Dante VSC and into an input on the desk.

If your desk already has Dante then you can just run the computer into your Dante network.

Otherwise, there are many flavors of outboard USB DAC from which to choose. Any would be better than a headphone jack.

Edit ps - I see you're not directly comparing the USB and 3.5mm TRS outputs, just overall perceived quality of the devices.

Correct. Assuming 3.5mm analog - there is a big variation of quality between devices. 

Any time the 1's and 0's from a computer can stay unmolested (no DA/AD) the better.  "I started life as a 1, but now I've been forced to identify as a 0.9"  ;D

Deleted my comment because the joke flew over my head.   :P

That's not exactly binary, now is it? ;)
