USB DAC/Digital Out to 5.1 DTS Receiver - Any Recommendation with a low Jitter

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am in the market for a USB DAC/Digital Out.  I will use it to digital out (spdif/coaxial) audio from my PC (music/movies) to a 5.1 DTS Receiver (digital in).

 

My budget is $80-$200(USD).  From what I have read, asynchronous is a must in order to achieve low jitter.

Wouldn't the DAC also have to be capable of decoding DTS / Dolby Digital for this to work?

From what I understand because I am using the digital out to send the data stream to my DTS receiver, I would do a AC3 passthru
