Lookin to purchase a DAC,and have many Questions! 1st, does a DAC convert music from any pc source? Like if my wife wants to listen to music off of youtube,does it convert that?> or just the streaming music services? And 2nd,whats a good DAC for $500 or less? Iv'e browsed the Music Fidelity MkII,and the Cambridge Dac Magic Plus. And are the older DacMagic's any good? They can be had for much less.
I basically want to use this for pc music only,as i feel my CD player(Oppo) sounds great for my cd's!
I'm kinda lost in this new venture,so any help is greatly apprieciated! I have windows7,and have read that flac doesn't run with windows. All the music I listen to right now is through my Oppo,with cd's,so this is a large jump for me!
Also,i sometimes listen to Direct Tv music stations! The music sounds mute,and doccile. Will a DAC help this as well?
So many Questions,so many things to learn! help!
