DAC for windows desktop speakers (Logitech X230) - 200$

    Hi

    I have these 15 year old logitech speakers (X230) which still sound very good compared to new 150-200$ speakers. I play 320kpbs via windows 7. Now I am looking to upgrade my sound by spending ~150-200$ more.

    So I figure that best investment would be to get a new DAC. Is my thinking correct?

    If yes, please suggest best DAC for this computer setup under 200$. Should not be too heavy.

    Thanks.

    I use an Audioquest Dragonfly Red for my office, sounds great and fits in your budget.

    Schiit Modi3. Save the change in case you might get headphones and a headphone amp later on.

    How does Modi 3 compare with nano iDSD Black Label ?

    iDSD has a built in headphone amp. Apart from that I can only compare the Nano iDSD to the Modi2+Magni2 is a hair brighter but gets harsh when really cranked up, although by that point the Nano iDSD would have clipped anyway.

    Would it help if Hifimediy changed their name to Trump DAC, to make it a name brand?
    For speakers like the Logitech X230, can't see any good reason for spending more then $50 for a DAC.
