Hmmm… Many thanks indeed.
That said, I am now utterly and spectacularly confused! Until 8 months ago, all I listened to ever was LP records. I had an SACD player, but used it only when I was too exhausted to cue a record. I started experimenting with digital because I had started reading that they are actually listenable. I tried a bunch, before finding Roon. Needless to say, I love the interface, and obviously the next issue is SQ. I set it up the easiest way I could think of. However, this thread got me doing more research, and everything I thought I knew has turned topsy turvy!
So, now the request for advise restarted. Given that I have a great integrated amp, and some nice speakers, what are my best options for: a) a DAC (I am happy to get rid of mine (a Schitt Bifrost Multibit) and start afresh if needed); b) whatever connects to a DAC?
Thank you all for your patience and advise!
