Get started with a M2Tech Hiface USB-SPDIF converter and feed your LiteDAC. With your system you can begin to experience internet radio stations and your music library through iTunes. See if you like it and go from there. The next step would be a Mac Mini which would be marginally better. You should rip your CDs to a separate drive for storage and another drive for back up. It goes up from there. Check out Computeraudiophile for details. Firewire will limit you to the types of DACs you can use and may not be available in the distant future. Most of all, don't pay attention to all the esoteric and detailed pathways, but enjoy the availablility of all your music library. You can always advance from there. The possibilities are endless. I use a 2009 Mac mini with separate USB drives in RAID configuration plus separate off-site storage running the M2Tech hiface USB-BNC interface to an Eastern Electric DAC BNC input. It is the evolution of music. Enjoy and have fun!
