I pretty much have no knowledge about DACs and was wondering if you guys could help me on this. I am searching for a DAC in a price range of around 160$ (or less).
I currently have an old Stax SR-40, an AKG K701 and a pair of triangle speakers on a Yamaha Natural Sound Stereo Amplifier A-420, but lack of a good DAC to drive it all. I want to use it as an interface between my computer and the amp (I'm thinking about USB input and RCA output) and will use it for listening to music, playing games and watching movies. I also need it to be available in Europe, since I live in France.
I heard this one was pretty good for its price, is it a good idea to get one or is there a better solution? (http://www.amazon.com/Music-Streamer-High-Resolution-Converter/dp/B0038O4UFQ)
Thank you in advance for your replies.
