I've got a pair of Ascend CBM-170's, an adcom gfa-535 stereo amp, and... that's it.
However, I've also got a 2TB hard drive housed in a beautiful white Fractal Design case. I pretty much do 320 mbps mp3s exclusively.
My roommates have a PS3... using PS3mediaserver, I can stream music to the PS3. Probably don't want to use the analog outputs, tho... am I right? I was thinking about a Parasound P/HP-850, but then I'd be using the PS3 line outs which I dunno about.
The obvious solution at this point would be a receiver with toslink, or something a bit more exotic like the Emotiva XDA-1 or 2. The XDA-1 is in my price range, ~$200.
However, how would something like a Squeezebox compare against the XDA-1 as a preamp? Keep in mind my speakers cost $330, so I am somewhat hesitant about buying a $200 preamp even tho it should be a decent deal.
Also, am I missing any other solution out there?
