    I ordered one this morning to test out. It looks like it should be ideal for people considering doing away with a head unit yet still having good control over their speakers. It has on screen programming, optical in, and coaxial in.
    Thanks, that will do the job. We don't sell PG, so I hadn't looked at them. Picking them up soon though.

    In fact, I will go out on a limb here and say a dedicated DAC plus good amplifier will sound better than almost all other DAC + AMP combos for a similar amount of money out there.
    Of course it is being converted inside the amp.

    The performance will not suffer to a point that you could every hear it. You could only measure it at best.

    This car has a limited amount of space, and a lot of other items being installed in it, so space is at a premium. The PG amp that he listed will do the job just fine for this application.

    Can't afford that one. Too much for my blood, but I am probably using it in one of our show cars soon.

    You didn't indicate this as a reason for needing a single unit.

    I'm in canada so I can'T really help for a dealer.

    And for sure it should fit with the digital output from your audigy. A digital out is a digital out... I even think some member here has the Alpine module, maybe with a search you could find.
