Squuezebox Touch with or without DAC?
My set-up is as shown below, and for the first time in about 3 years I have no DAC. Currently, my PC is hooked up to my amp using the onboard soundcard using a cheapo 3.5mm/2 RCA lead. Not ideal, but the sound is passable for the time being until I decide which route I'm going to go in the future. My PC is used for mainly Spotify plus internet radio, though I do have my entire CD collection ripped to my PC also.
I'm toying with the idea of a Squeezebox Touch, and from I've read they perform pretty well on their own. However, I notice lots of people using them with a DAC too. Is this necessary in your opinion, or overkill?
Any SBT owners care to comment?
