Would optical connection reduce clipping?

I get a lot of "clipping" when playing my MP3s. Its not audible but my clip indicator light comes on all the time. My connection is stero miniplug of my soundcard to left-right RCA on my receiver. I am thinking about getting a Digital I/O expansion card for my soundcard that has optical out. Would using optical connections reduce or eliminate the clipping or distortion I am getting?
