I know there are a couple of threads about PC to DAC, but i am looking to add an inbetwwen that can preferably do TV and radio. Is the TV radio mix impossible.
I'm currently running a "Patriot Box Office" media box.
Has ethernet/wireless input, with HDMI, RCA, SPDIF out.
I stream from a BSD server, though laptop may be used depending if I grab some new media.
Cheap and effective. Currently running the onboard DAC, through RCA out, the TV via the HDMI. Looking at a Hagerman valve DAC or something similar down the track.
