USB Converters
 
I have a modded CS4397 DAC (Ebay Special) and would like to add a USB converter for Music Server duty. But, I realized how much I really don't understand about digital music.

-How important is bit depth and sampling rate to audiophile sound? There are scads of 96K converters available. Do I really need 192K?

-What is the sampling rate of Hi-Fi downloads?

-SPDIF or I2S output (of a converter)?

-What are the Groups favorite converters < $500?

-<$100?:)


After days of trolling the Web for an education on Async USB converters, I am more confused that when I started...

Thanks,
-John
