computer based music solution
As predicted in an earlier post my PC is on it's way out. I am looking to get a new desktop PC to which I will add an amp, DAC and speakers and turn into a computer-based music system. I would be looking to spend around £300 each on an amp, DAC and speakers.
Are there any components that I should be looking for (or avoiding) in my new PC - for example would a soundcard upgrade improve the quality (or do onboard components not have a significant impact after running the music through an amp/DAC combo?
I wouldn't be looking to spend a huge amount upgrading components and around £600 on the actual PC itself (willing to go a bit higher for the right system)
