((XP up to date,one gig of ram.))
I'm thinking of getting another SATA hard drive,installing it,and transferring my 16b ,44.1 compact disks to it. I know I can use a compatible USB(II) digital to audio converter,and then feed the dac to a pre amp and so on,for my audio system.
But here is my question,if I am playing a disk on my Lite On player and try to feed THAT to the USB dac,will it bypass the preamplifier function on the audio card? If not,is there a way I can manipulate it to bypass the preamplifier function or must I record the disk to the hard drive for the DAC to work properly?
