Difference in digital sources
Just a quick theoretical question for you all based on the following set ups:
- Music is ripped to a hard drive
- Music accessed through a music server
- Music server outputs to a DAC
- DAC outputs to an amplifier
Does it make any difference what music server is used in this example? To put it another way would a sonos / squeezebox / linn ds all sound the same?
For the purpose of control assume that the hard drive, dac and amplifier are held constant.
I'm interested only in sound quality, not the ease of use of each server.
My hypothesis is that there is no difference between any music server in this scenario.
