Hello,

Here I need you to give me advice on a purchase. I've had a PC gaming setup for quite a while now.

I have my amp and speakers on it. Everything is fine but I want my HIFI installation to be separated from my gaming PC. There's already the soundbar for movies and games.

But I absolutely don't know how to choose another installation. I thought of a new one
PC or MAC but what worries me is the sound card and mass problems related to USB.

I would like to be able to use my Flac sources on a HDD or SSD and Qobuz.

On my Quloos A690 amp I have optical and USB.

So how to do it clean and for 400E max. Thanks for your help!!

I am French. Hope the translation is ok.

Mac Mini or some NUC for music storage, Audirvana or Foobar for audio player, USB or optical cable for connection.

What do you intend to buy for those 400 euros?
