First post here.
I wanted to ask my question in this forum as it seems the users here are quite knowledgeable.
I am a bit of a newbie when it comes to hi end audio and digital music but learning more and more all the time.
I am also in the process of building my 2 channel system.
I thought or think i am on the right track but I recently read that a USB connection is not ideal for hi res music playback (connecting a PC to an external dac).
I recently bought an external DAC and have purchased some hi res music (DSD) and well it sounds pretty good to me. But after reading what I did, now I am wondering, am I still missing something?
I really have nothing else to compare it too, so perhaps I am missing out, I don’t know.
My question is, I know I can probably get better USB Cables and that might make a difference but should I also invest in getting a device that supposedly cleans up the usb output before getting to the DAC?
Also, what other way can you output from a computer?
Most DAC’s that I have seen have a USB Type B input specifically to connect to a computer.
Any info would be awesome!
