    Squeezebox and Dac64

    Quick question... Does a squeezebox duet hooked up to a Chord DAC64 offer SQ on par with a high-end CD-player? NB: The squeezebox is sourcing FLAC files from a NAS. If not, are there any ways to improve the SQ? My feeling is that the squeezebox should be delivering a bit-perfect signal...
