I'm conducting an experiment using my home PC and my Tascam. Now, I believe the PC will have the edge in playback fidelity because it can buffer, oversample and convert to audio more, faster, better, because it has 6 processor cores and 16GB of 2000MHz memory to do it. AFAIK there is no CD player built anywhere even close to having that kind of raw processing power. My onboard audio has both optical and coax output that can be matched to the Tascam and run to an outboard DAC.
I guess we will see.
Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.
