Use a program like Media Monkey and it will play almost any thing and all the new HD formats too. There are other programs thast will do the same thing. And you can use a USB DAC and run it to your preamp. I'm fortunate that I have a coax jack ont he back of my PC. I will be using Media Monkey. MM is a free download. Go to Mediamonkey.com. It's as simple as that. Scott Nixon makes both tube and solid state USB DAC's I believe. The prices are reasonable. There are other DAC's out there that do the same thing but I cannot attest to it's sound. I have a Scott Nixon Tube DAC and I will be using it. Mine is not the USB type but standard Coax from my pc to the DAC and to my preamp. And I will be in business.
