Yes its fronts and sub...., im not worried about overkill, if It will work thetn its what I will use, I can get one quite cheap, I am looking into sending then absolutely best sound signal from my PC to my amp, and I was told that the SPDIF on my Via M10k was the best way to do this, so I guess the question is, can I hook this DAC to my SPDIF output on my Via M10k Mobo and then hook this Nakamichi DAC to my amp? Thanks for te help!
If you are looking at the one on Ebay that ends in 30 min, look at the DAC-101. It is a better unit - IMHO. There is one with a "Buy It Now" of $80 plus shipping ($15). I would get it, but have a different priority right now.
Older design, but very well proven to do a good job. I've only used the DAC-41 with the Musicbank stuff.
Hell, I'll explain it this way, the guy that just sold the DAC-41 just bought a DAC-101 .... that should simplify it for you .... :-)
It's a older unit, very simple, but you don't need anything complicated. BTW - you do realize that you won't get 5.1 this way, only convert it to a 2ch analog signal? Also, how do you plan on controlling the volume level?
