In my living room I currently have a pair of Wilson Watt2 Puppy3 's, with a mid-90s era Fosgate pre-amp and Hafler amp. I'm planning to rip my CDs to an Infrant NAS using FLAC and feed them into the living room using Slim Devices. I need help deciding between the following three alternatives:
1. Buying the Transporter and feeding the analog o/p into my Fosgate
2. Buying the Squeezebox3 and using its digital o/p into a DAC, still using the Fosgate as a pre-amp (in which case, which DAC?)
3. Replacing the Fosgate with a processor/preamp like an Anthem AVM 30 or even Statement D1 and using its DAC (again, which one?)
Money is a criterion, as is value for money and future-proofing.
