RE: digital newbie question: youtube music download vs. FLAC and AIFF

Thanks for the advice on redbook, PAR. I certainly don't want to corner myself into a small library. I listen primarily to 20th and 21st century chamber music.

Regarding a good DAC, do you have any ideas. Ideally, I want to be able to download music files via my iMAC. Then, access the music files that reside on my iMAC via some device that has a good DAC. I am unsure where to begin and any input would be appreciated. I don't want to break the bank, say $2k or so. FYI: I used to playback redbook via downloaded files onto my iPod Classic which sounded very nice, in my opinion. But, the iPod Classic does not play the hi-rez files.
