Congratulation on your upgrades. Really like your PC-based system. I would like to try JRiver myself to see how it my work with my system. Have you tried different media player and if so, can you hear the the difference.
I see you have the Parasound A3 and the 23. How does it sound? Thanks and happy listening
Realremo, since you are familiar with the setting for up sampling audio, where do you set it on the PC? I right click the speaker icon and the playback pops up. In the playback section, there is a place where you adjust the sampling rate and depth. Is this the place because my PC laptop has the 24/192k option. Thanks
Realremo, reason I mention about the V-Link is because I am considering getting a V-DAC II. I have been going into PC audio but been using the headphone out as my output. You said you have use the USB input of the DLIII and was not very good sounding. At what was it sampled directly? What computer are you using? Musical Fidelity makes a V-LInk 192, have you consider it?
