Hi all - my first post here. I'm contiplating building a Windows PC based carputer and have lots of research to do. Looking through this forum, it looks like a great resource for information and advice.
One aspect of my current plan is to keep the audio signal in the digital realm all the way to the amplifiers. Currently I'm thinking of a bi-amped mid/tweet+subwoofer using a nanoDIGI for crossover and EQ. An abbreviated system layout would consist of:
PC digital out from a MSI E350IA-E45 motherboard
NanoDIGI (2x8) - nanoDIGI 2x8K | miniDSP
DAC just upstream of each amplifier - FiiO D03K Digital / Analog audio Decoder 230-120
I'm looking for any usefull critisism of the concept. I know I've seen some discussion that PC digital out may have some issues, and that a dedicated soundcard would be beneficial (but I'm not really sure why). Also, I know the DAC's I've chosen are cheap, but I'm trying to keep overall cost down.
