DAC or sound card... if DAC which one?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone.

 

I posted a very similar question on the computer hardware forum but then saw that bright red banner saying that DAC questions should go here. I am looking to upgrade. I have a computer which I primarily listen to music on. I also have a pair of AudioEngine A5+ active speakers and an S8 active sub. I don't need an amplifier. My question becomes should I get a DAC and if so, which one should I get for under 200$ or should I get the Asus Xonar Essence and upgrade the op-amps?

 

Which one is better and why? Also, within my price range, is anything better than the Dragonfly?

 

Thanks,

~Ben

I would say to check out the Hifimediy Sabre USB DAC ($57+shipping).
