I am currently working on getting my entire library ripped to Apple Lossless. I am also looking at DACs. I'll be using iTunes because I can use my iPhone as a remote and I already have all my files/organization/artwork there.
My question is: are there any settings on my computer that I need to be aware of to maximize the sound quality out of the USB? Or is this just a plug and play operation? Windows 7 Lenovo laptop.
My system is: Arcam amplification and Arcam CD Player. Dali Helicon 400 speakers and Rel sub. Audioquest cables throughout. Goal is to use a laptop as a music server using my iPhone as a remote, as mentioned.
Thanks in advance!
