I've been reading your forum and it's great. I tried to post earlier, but I think I have a better understanding of what I'm after, so I'm going to try this again.
I'm interested in adding a DAC to my setup, where I play 320 and FLAC files from my computer. My initial thought was to consider running a JDS Labs ODAC directly from my comp to my headphones, but I realize now that this is not a good idea.
I would optionally run the DAC from the comp through my stereo amp, but this presents an inconvenience with volume control, and would also require a headphone extension cable for the cans.
So I wonder if there are any suggestions. I was hoping to keep this under $200. I'm have KEF M500s, and the sound card in my new computer is just not cutting it.
My second thought was to go with something like a Fiio E17. But then I'm not sure how this would work if I connected the comp to my stereo amp through the Amp/DAC.
Thanks for your input.
