    The issue is, as I see it, you can have an amp with digital input, but you still need to control the volume and other parameters.

    I use a Behringer UCA-202.
    The line level is quite ok for in-car, although not 4V output.
    no pops or clicks.

    only down-side is the master volume is external from the PC.

    no, it's like a speaker and a microphone built in together.
