I Am The Noobiest Of All Noobs. Please Help Me!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I Have The Famous Klipsch 2.1 Promedia Setup Connected To My 2011 27" iMac. I Download My Music From iTunes And Also Use Spotify. I Watch YouTube Videos & Netflix Instant All The Time (So No Gaming or Video Editing).. Now I Want The Next Step Up In Sound Quality. 

 

I've Been Researching The Emotiva Airmotiv 4s/5s For Months Now. I Think That's Where I'm Headed. But I Have No Idea How To Connect Them To My iMac.

 

I Too Want A DAC To Up The Sound Quality. I've Had My Eye On The Schiit Modi And The Audioengine D1. However I Do Not Need A Headphone Jack/Amplifier.

 

So I Guess What I'm Asking Is What Recommendations Would You Make For Speakers, DAC, Anything Else I May Need That I Don't Know About And How To Connect It All. 

 

Thanks In Advance! If Your 9 Year Old Kid Was Having This Problem; However You Would Talk Them Through This Is Probably How You Should Talk To Me. Lol (:

To connect your iMac (or Schiit Modi) to the Emotiva Airmotiv speakers.

Need a cable with a 3.5mm (1/8") stereo male connector to RCA (red/white) male connectors.

Thanks Man! Do You Think The Airmotiv's Paired With A Modi Are The Way To Go For My Needs? If Not What Would You Recommend As Far As DACs And Speakers Go?

Off hand I really have no idea on what else to recommend.

Get the Modi and the cable, I would think you would be fairly happy with the Modi.
