Hi everyone. I am just discovering the whole computer audiophile idea. I need some much needed information, and general knowledge to get me pointed in the right direction. I would like to set up a system using a windows 7 all in one, or possibly a laptop if need be. I have already purchased Jriver media center 18, and need to know the best sounding hardware configuration. Presently, I have my music stored on an external hard drive connected to my router which feeds my Oppo BDP-95 via ethernet. I would like to use a newly purchased computer with Jriver to feed a newly purchased asynchronous usb DAC/preamp, in a dedicated music room. My question is how do I set this up for the best possible sound. Do you have to have a high end sound card for the ASIO implementation? Where do I store the music, and what is the best way to get my music to the DAC as un-scathed as possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Hi, Ive been following computer audiophile for quite a long time and this is my first posting. Im after some advice as Im looking to upgrade from my basic system, which is just an imac hooked up to my tivoli 2. I was using a behringer uca202 dac but for some reason when using mog, I would get no sound. The computer sounds would come through the speakers but not the music...... Im looking at upgrading, but still I do not have a lot of money to spend. Im looking at the schiit modi dac. For an amp im looking at getting the appj miniwatt tube amplifier, hooked up to bookshelf speakers. Possibly something like the q acoustics 2010's or similar. I need it to be something simple, which my wife can operate with ease. I dont mind spending a little bit more money if they are quality products which will get years of music listening out of. Any suggestions on the products Im looking at or others which I should think about it, would be greatly appreciated, cheers in advance.
