A bit confused - Arcam Solo Mini

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I can get an Arcam Solo mini at very cheap price (250$ canadian).

 

What I want to do is connect it to my computer to play music. If I do that, will it be using the DAC that can be found within the receiver? Is the DAC good? Or would it be better if I just bought the Arcam DAC (which I can also receive at a good price, 180$ canadian)?

 

I would like to have the Solo Mini because I'd like to have something I can manual adjust music with and things like that.

 

What do you guys think?
