To those of you who use an HTPC/CAPS PC to "feed" your DAC, how many of you use the $300 SOtM USB card?
Despite it being recommended in the "CAPS" builds listed on a different website, I am not sure I quite see the point in spending $300 on one. How much of a difference could it make?
Otherwise, my goal is to build a fanless CAPS PC with a PICO external power supply to tone down on internal noise. Thoughts?
