DAC, which one to choose?

Good time of day. Guys, anybody can help about buying a DAC? The situation is, there are amplifier denon pma-560 is a computer with SPDIF OUT connector built, I want to change it to the built in soundcard did not make any distortion and the sound processed by the amplifier. In Danone DAC device, there is additionally the idea to take harman/kardon HD-970 for the sake of it, but I can't find in Ukraine, especially at the normal price. Are there any alternatives? The budget is not limitless :) Thanks.

Solution
Goals, objectives,... Sound from video? Or music — mp3, or lossless? The degree of audiophilia?

In principle, answering the question, there is such a thing.
Goal music mp3 320, ALAC, the degree of audiophilia very elementary, equipment, Denon pma 560 and speakers Heco Victa 301. I want the DAC to Galima built-in motherboard soundcard the sound did not cut with all sorts of their uluchshiteli and sent directly to the amplifier. Thanks for the link, but I thought there is something cheaper, the money is not enough nowadays. Some old b/CD player with a good DAC, or something of this series... - bernadine.Wiegand53 commented on October 8th 19 at 02:30
Damned one way or another will contribute, though in the figure. Plus OSes. If your sound card is specialized, with its own mixer, in the system mixer for the purpose of unification of the audio streams with different parameters perepuskajutsja so that, if desired, and the appropriate material, you can hear "soap".
On topic, I can look on radio stations old professional MiniDisc-players Sony.



Kinematics they fail, the cost of replacement is comparable to the price of a new player. Yes, and its MD on the radio are dead. And DAC-s in them are often found very decent. For example in the fact that the picture is an honest 20-bit. - clementina.Kessler38 commented on October 8th 19 at 02:33
I have in the bins, three of them are lying. Until recently, you could have to give, but now had the idea to translate the broadcast on the Mac Mini and use it just as an external DAC. - clementina.Kessler38 commented on October 8th 19 at 02:36
Thanks, Google :) - bernadine.Wiegand53 commented on October 8th 19 at 02:39

that and easier to buy a good soundcard
Question holivary of course, but then why passive speakers plus amplifier? Yes, there was a good version of zvukovojj and Studio monitors, but in the end I didn't stop. - bernadine.Wiegand53 commented on October 8th 19 at 02:32
So as not to lose in quality, but stay within the numbers, IMHO, it is better to buy an external player that will play wav and mp3 of the balls over the network. I have now on the web to play reserve here such devices. Computer, because of the compromise of universalization, still spoils the sound. It is not so noticeable, but audiphile computer is contraindicated. - clementina.Kessler38 commented on October 8th 19 at 02:35
I still love the computer as a universal processor, it is more convenient. And the audiophile yet in a very initial stage :) - clementina.Kessler38 commented on October 8th 19 at 02:38
The DAC should be cheaper acoustics 10 times, then there will be bottlenecks. get an external soundcard. And I advise you to stay away from assholes - bernadine.Wiegand53 commented on October 8th 19 at 02:41
