Thanks! I really appreciate it the quick answer!
I have a couple of other questions if you don't mind:
- Does the length of the USB cable make a big difference? I have a set up where I would like to run a cable that is about 4m in length.
- I listen to mostly lossless CD rips. The application I am looking for is to run from my laptop with will be on my desk over to my amplifier that sits in a cabinet a few meters away. Am I likely to notice much of a sound quality difference between the E10 and an ODAC?
- Are there any budget friendly (sub $200) but relatively good quality (I know - quality is very subjective) DACs that take an optical input? Depending on the answer to question 1, if I go optical I could stream digital signal using airplay to my airport express and then go optical to a DAC then into my amp.
