I’m trying to get my head around this digital world and relate it to the boxes I am testing. So now I hear clear differences going up through the Innuos range even with spdif into nDAC. Spdif doesn’t needed to be seen as second rate to uPnP. Both depend on high quality data transfer.
Some of the quality comes through the design of the music server as I am finding. So a question I have is whether USB to spdif boxes such as the Yellowtech PUC2 designed to isolate PC/Mac from professional sound equipment can enable a less expensive music server to sound like a more expensive one?
Any views (@Simon-in-Suffolk and others)? Thanks
