Ok, welcome everyone to this noob thread,
I own AKG k701, with a cmoy amp and a Minimax amp setup.
I am planning on buying a DAC, have researched for quite a bit.
However, I just can't seem to get a concept of this 24bit / 192kHz.
When I'm using Foobar2000 as my music player on my desktop,
I see a bitrate ranging from 128 to 320 kbps, and whole bunch of FLACs that goes way beyond 320.
In fact, majority of mp3 files I have is at 320 with very few exceptions (10% of the total maybe?) that are lesser or equal to 192kbps.
Does this mean that buying DAC with 24bit/192kHz is meaningless?
I am so confused :P
I am still confused which factors to look at when buying DAC, and what improvements would DAC provide. (I read something about cleanness... etc..)
Considering the existing setup I have, what would be the ideal price range of DAC to buy? (I personally am looking at the range of 100~250)
Phew, thats a lot of noob questions. Hope to hear from you all professionals :)
