After some more research on your suggestion I realized that the little DAC I'm using atm can be used as a USB to optical converter. So needless to say after reading nothing but positive comments about it, I'm in for one Beresford Bushmaster MKII. Thanks for the suggestion :).
Thats good news buddy, I use a USB to optical/spdif converter with mine. In fact I always use these over direct usb.
Off topic but read.
Using a spidif to input your DAC is fine
But the cable must be good for the purpose
And you are far better off using a already made one PC adaptor
I will post what I mean later here.
The pint is we use a regular coax cable
And the imp of the cable must be 75. Ohm
And most all of them are not.
Just a heads up.
I think he's going to use optical anyways bud.
