“Bob, but is what you are calling a USB soundcard not a DAC as it converts the digital from USB into analogue to go into ST1 analogue input.
And there is a soundcard in the PC, connected to the green Line Out connector, so Option 1 is viable, albeit with ‘underwater’ type sound…”

Only as much as the soundcard in the PC is a DAC (converting digital from the PCI bus to Analogue) – they both *contain* a DAC, but they do a whole lot more (much of which you probably don’t care about)

Maybe it’s semantics, but I think you’ll find the search for a USB card much easier than a USB DAC 😉
