Hey guys, I'm just about to order the Little Dot MKIII, and all I have right now is a laptop with the standard 3.5mm headphone jack. I have a question ... is there a DAC under $200, perhaps closer to $100 actually that will be satisfactory with my laptop and the Little Dot? I can't spend much more than that. I will be able to spend a lot more than that on one about a month from now, but I only want to do that if folks think that this will sound fine and still be an improvement for a month just out of my laptop. If so, do I just buy a 3.5mm to RCA cable and plug that into the amp and plug my headphones into the amp? Something like this? http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-Audio-Cable-Splitter-1-Mini/dp/B00004Z5CP/ref=sr_1_1?rps=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1339506723&sr=8-1
I saw someone say that the HRT Streamer II is really good and I wanted to, but I was wondering if there was anything maybe even cheaper that might still be good. Let me know, thanks.
