I recently bought a B&K AVR 305 receiver to be used with my new home theater system. The system is used for both music and movies. All my media comes from either a PC or a laptop,and I currently have the PC connected to the receiver via optical cable.
Somewhere in the process of getting my music to speakers a DAC has to be used,correct? Even though the B&K is a very good receiver for its time, is the DAC better than what I would find on newer stand-alone USB DACs for under 300 dollars?
