Is the DAC in my Wadia 860 up to current DAC standards?
Just getting into Computer Audio. 860's never been upgraded so I can only use 44.1KHz... I would need to feed it with a USBto S/PDIF Bridge (I was looking at the Halide Designs Bridge 1.01) Silent PC with JRIver - streaming WAV files.
Does that make sense or should I go the dedicated DAC route?
I should note that the 860 sounds fantastic on CD's - no Pre-Amp - to Pass Labs x150 and Vandersteen 5's
