RE: synology 213j dierct to dac anyone??

Hi all,

I am sure I have read on here somewhere that the synology 213j can stream direct to a dac and then to an amp with no need for a streamer, anyone know if this is really possible and if so how and do you need any special software or other tricks. And if it is possible is it a reliable way of listening to tunes??

yes its possible as long as ypour dac has usb

i use DS Audio app to control everything, you just select USB speaker for the output
