I've been a member for some time, but this is my first post. I hope to get some advice.
I currently run an Acer laptop with 8Gb ram, i5 processor,NAND windows 7. My audio player is JRiver running WASAPI event out to a Hiface (Young driver) with a 6db attenuator, then onto a Dacmagic via a Van Den Hul coax cable. I then run into a SCHA amp using Sennheiser HD580's.
I run the PC as a music only server, and it's running pretty lean. I use ISone Pro which is fantastic. I'm pretty happy with the sound I'm getting but I keep wondering how much I can improve it. I live in a fairly isolated area, and it is difficult to test gear, so I'm planning to buy without auditioning. There are two products that I am considering; the Schiit Bifrost to replace my Dacmagic, and the Audiophilleo 2 to replace the Hiface.
I'll possibly get both, but only one for now. Based on my current gear, where would I see the most improvement? Any advice would be appreciated.
