RE: Newbie here - Basic question


Good questions, I have an old 10+ years old Apple network. It's slow. No music streaming. No DAC.

I'm using a new Van Alstine 120 control amp and Vision phono phono pre. It only has 4 inputs, 1 for phono, CD/DVD player, Tuner, & TV box.

The DAC would be necessary to handle the CD/DVD player (audio only, probably use the optical input) and the network device to handle the audio playback on the CD files.

FlaCharlie, We've had issues with itunes in the past so may not want to go that route. Good to know about the Express, have one or two at the moment.
