Don't get me wrong, my audio rig and pc rig remain entirely separate from each other at all times; I certainly understand that a pc is a less-than-ideal transport to begin with. I would argue that for the more conventional listener, improving the source is a starting point that is probably going to help in the long run.
In regards to the statement "considered to be one of the best in the world in its time", I would point to the subjective nature of any such claim (both in technical design and performance). Not to diminish your rig, which I'm sure is excellent both in form and function, but cost is not the absolute indicator of quality, as much as many audiophiles seem to believe these days.Edited by Aura - 12/27/08 at 11:31pm
