    That would be the best interface. I think George has a heavily modded PC as his streamer. Not sure if he’s using his aurender as a streamer. George? If so, that’s very good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    SoundMann - It would be helpful for you to list your components. Many here have a wealth of experience with DACs across many price points. You are likely to get some very helpful insights.
