To Doug Schneider,
Can you recommend an inexpensive DAC to get into computer audio with? I don’t want to spend over $500. Also, please recommend an inexpensive USB cable.
We actually answered a similar question to this one on April 30, and today our answer would still be the same. We suggest looking at the High Resolution Technology Music Streamer series as well as the Hegel HD2. You can use any ol’ USB cable to start with, but if you want to get into something “audiophile approved,” then look at the offerings from AudioQuest -- their Forest USB cable is only $30. . . .
