I've looked through the search but couldn't find any solid answers so I decided to start a thread.
I'm in the process of upgrading my PC and my DAC both, and what I heard was that if I wanted to use a dac with 24bit or higher playback then I need to use SPDIF coax or optical out from a pc soundcard into the DAC
Now the question is, do I need a pc sound card with SPDIF coax or optical? or can I get SPDIF out some other way so I don't waste money on a soundcard with a dac built in just to plug it into ANOTHER external dac.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: I don't know if I want to use USB anymore since I hear about jitter and all the stuff around it.
