Default USB DAC options

So I am putting together my first hifi setup

Black/Blue tpa 3116 cause it seems to be the easiest to change parts on, read through the thread and have a game plan, all parts on the way
Astron 7amp
GR research x-ls encores based off of recommendations from everyone here

Now i'm already over the budget I wanted to spend and I still need more parts but it seems like it'll be worth it

Now I need a usb DAC but it seems like there are a million chip options and that the technology is advancing so quickly that nothing seems current. Is it possible to get something cheap and replace parts like in my amp choice to make something good and cheap? I have my music on a freenas server and would be playing on my laptop through something like jriver

Also do I need a preamp? or would it be possible to control volume elsewhere

thanks in advance
