    Hi there,
    I have much music stored in uncompressed format on my computer. I woudl like to buy an interface that takes this digital data and converts it the best way to analog and the hooks up to my amplifier via RCA cables. I only need it for playback and not recording and obviously I only need 2 channels. What device should I get? I was looking at the Edirol UA-1EX but they don't even list the signal to noise ratio or dynamic range. What are the best D/A converters and whcih devices have them built in? Any suggestions are much appreciated. Thank you.

    E-MU 1212M PCI audio interface is about as good as it gets for what your asking, and the price is way more than fair for the quality of the A2D and D2A it provides. You will need either specific RCA to 1/4 inch cables, or RCA cables with 1/4 inch adapters.

    forgot: USB or firewire only

    forgot to say: I don't have a pci slot. USB and firewire only. Thanks for your reply.
