Squeezebox help and ideas wanted
I purchased a second hand Squeezebox SB3 from a pawn shop today, it was pretty cheap, I don't think the staff knew what it was.
My question(s) can the unit be improved with modifications, and how would I get the best sound out of it?
I am in the process of looking for a DAC, as the Squeezebox has a optical and digital output, which of these is best? Or is there any other way to get the signal out?
Any assistance appreciated.

What is it? A radio? musical instrument?

Thia model has analogue, coaxial and optical output.
It is digital so what improvements can be made, probably none with exception of a good quality optical receiver.
