FYI DAC pretty much = sound cards. They both do a fundamentally like thing. What are your goals? What is your budget?

I'm a big fan of Pro-Audio devices due to flexibility, fidelity, and reasonable prices vs the boutique varietals.

Looking to the future: Any chance of adding subs or a headphone?

Ok, then you have a huge amount of DACs to choose from.

Everything from the economical and well received TASCAM US-100

To the HRT Music Streamer II

To the Cambridge DAC Magic
