In my living room, I have a ZP90 connected to an older Sony A/V receiver (STR-DE597) that I bought on Craigslist. Earlier this year I added a pair of Polk TSi400 with a Polk subwoofer that I use for Sonos and my television.
As I've been learning more about digital audio, I keep seeing references to dedicated DAC units as something that will really boost sound quality.
My question is: with the components that I already have, would a DAC like the Peachtree DAC-iT
make a difference? My concern is that since my other components are not very high-end, the better sound quality of the DAC would not really come through.
Since this unit is about $500, would that be better spent on some other component, like a new A/V receiver?
And a related question: how would the DAC be wired? Does the output from the Sonos go to the DAC and then the output from the DAC go to the receiver?
