Hi, I bought the Edifiers about 4yrs ago & I love them. I drive currently them from two sources, Apple MBPro via USB & Marantz CD17ki sig via optical. Both these options use their own DACS followed by the built in Edifier DAC. I can't help wondering about any improvement to be achieved with an external DAC. Would it help to have a DAC with analog inputs? Oh I'm confused. Are the Edifiers using the DACS from the digital inputs or their own built in DACS? I'm also thinking of throwing a streamer into the mix so that would be three inputs. I was thinking something like the Topping DL90 or the SMSL SU9. Will I be wasting my money? or should I do it?
