Wake up your music!
Posted by: RussInColorado from: Golden, CO on
Let's face it, the sound quality of PC sound cards falls way short of the quality a good stereo can produce. I found a neat little device that converts a USB digital music signal from a USB port on a PC to a standard bitstream that can be sent to a DAC. (You could connect it to a digital input on a modern A/V receiver.)
I used the basic USB cable that came with the neat little device. Streaming uncompressed music from the PC did not sound as good as playing the original CD through the same DAC. The only weak link was the basic cable, so I replaced it with an AudioQuest Cinnamon 2.5' cable.
The improvement was huge! There is now almost no difference between playing a CD and streaming from the PC. (The CD transport and DAC have anti-jitter circuitry that a PC cannot match.) Now I can listen to my entire music collection on shuffle play AND get the full sound quality of my stereo.
For 50 bucks, highly recommended!
