I am currently running Desktop -> DAC -> Amp. The problem with my desktop is that its graphic card is noisy as hell. (ATI 4870x2)
So I'm thinking of buying a new laptop just for the headphone system. Apple looks nice but I have never used Mac before. I am looking for a quiet laptop that I can run foobar (I hate iTunes) and bit perfect. (something like WASAPI)
Any suggestion? How do those little macbooks do? Do they have SPIDF on the back? Will iTunes run faster on Macs? (iTunes runs pretty slow and dull on my desktop but I would love have the remote control feature with my iPod touch) Any PC based laptop that runs quiet? I'm open to anything... It doesn't have to be a laptop. HELP!!!
