Slowly, I have been turning my old CDs in FLAC files. Mostly I play these files on my laptop (Winamp) with headphones. However, I have a really nice old Fisher 300B tube amp with some pretty good speakers. I would like to play the files through this amp. The problem is, I'm guessing that I'm losing some sound quality by playing these files through my laptop because of a crap sound card. Is this a correct assumption?
If so, is there a good FLAC player (it doesn't have to portable) that can sit along site my amplifier and play these FLAC files? Something that has a good menu, sound card etc? Like a home stereo flac player?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
