What I am looking for is something that will take USB audio from a CAPS PC (that also serves as DVR with HD HomeRun) and will output to my Dynaudio Focus 160 speakers in a 2.0 setup. And do it better than my current HK 3490.
So while my sources tend to be "new-school" my stereo setup is more "old-school" and I intend to keep it that way. A 5.1, 7.1, 7.2, etc. setup does not interest me.
My previous thought was CAPS PC > DAC > NAIM XS2/SN2 > Speakers.
Current HiFi: Dynaudio Focus 260 | Meridian Direct DAC | NAIM XS 2 (2013)
Past HiFi: Dynaudio Excite X16 | Dynaudio Focus 160 | Harman Kardon HK3490
