Over the next couple of months (ie Christmas) I am looking to upgrade the speaker/ external soundcard set up I currently have. I currently use a Creative Sound Blaster Recon 3D external soundcard (plus the wireless headphone that come with it) plus some Creative T20 speakers. I have had some issues with the sound card playing up (ie not connecting) on regular occasions and so I am looking to upgrade both the card and the speakers. I do not intend binning the card as it works brilliantly with my PS4 in the living room an will be retired to that. I have no real audio experience however my TV set up is made up of Cambridge Audio Minx 21s and subwoofer and I have been really impressed. With this in mind I have been looking at the Cambridge Audio Dac magic 100 or Dac Magic plus as a starting point. However, I have since found out about the Cambridge Audio 1. http://www.richersounds.com/package/system-savers/mini-hi-fi-system-deals/pah011944 My understanding is that this has a built in DAC and USB connection to input from a PC. The price also includes the Minx XL speakers for free in the bundle (should be £200). While I have no real need for a hifi system in the room my PC is in it would probably be used in the long term. Would this make a suitable external sound setup for a PC or would I be better going for a standalone DAC and seperate speakers? I remember a Custom PC article specifically mentioning and praising the Dac Magic 100 a while ago so I am hoping someone can give me a steer in the right direction. Any ideas would be great! Cheers!
