Yesterday, I picked up a pair of B&W 686s. Right now, I am home for the summer and have them hooked up to my parents receiver. However, I'll be going back to college next month and do not own an amp or receiver that can power them. To begin with, I'll probably just use them in my bedroom.
What I'm thinking of doing is buying a big hard drive, ripping my CDs to a lossless format, and using the computer as the source. I've read a little about the Trends Micro TA 10.1 and the Sonic Super T. Do you think one of these, or something similar would work well for what I want to do?
Also, how should I go about connecting my computer to the amp in order to get the best quality? Using output of my sound card, buying a squeezebox 3, or another method?
I appreciate and advice you can offer me.
