Incoming email said … I hope that someone or a few might feel inspired to help me out with my goal below for building a high end laptop based audio system. I have a couple of hard drives full of Flac files from CDs and want to use them to tie into a laptop based high end home audio system.

  1. Does anyone have a system set up like this where their main concern was audio quality?
  2. Can you suggest how I should get started?
  3. What specific things to purchase for this goal.

Example: what kind of laptop; what kind of DAC; what kind of integrated amp., etc. If you are kind enough to help, I'm a bit of a novice. So, if you can keep it simple I'll understand much better. Thanks.
