Bought a Schiit Modi to see how it compares to the audio out from my computer. I have a few different downstream end-states for it: Powered computer speakers, powered bookshelf speakers (which have their own DAC but also have RCA in) and my stereo, which also has it's own DAC, but I can use the Modi to connect my PC to it as well. And there is my CD player. So lots of playing around. I listen mostly to ripped CD's but I also listen to a fair number of online concerts.
