Hello all

I am just about to purchase a P51, thanks to all the glowing reviews on these forums. However, I want to run it as a DAC. Obviously, it isn't one, so I have a question:

Will running a DAC (in my case, a total bithead) on my computer as the sound card, then plugging in a portable amp (P51 in my case), sound only as good as the DAC?

Thanking you!

that is a good question, id like a hard dac with actual optical output and not just "thru" --and my question is will the dac, in my case my dir800c pioneer dolby headphone recieve, pass the dolby headphone tech through, obviously it wont amp up the signal thru ,
i was consider ing getting the 2000 base station reciever by pioneer, after reading the bad reviews on it being week, but if you preamp it who knows
