Me too. Wink  I'll probably be keeping the DEC685 in my bedroom system where it is now doing duty for that purpose.

PS:  Steve let me know that he could make a switchable two input ZBox for about an additional 100 dollars (or retrofit one for about the same).

Just wanted to say that I have been using the ZBox with three new players the last fews months, and in each instance the ZBox always makes an improved sound.

An amazing product!

So what would you use for an optical/coax output from a PC sound card? I use the  HT OMEGA CLARO Plus+ sound card.

I want to buy the Zbox, Taboo, and some bookshelf speakers but I also want to hear some of my music from the PC on the same system. I own 2 DVD/SACD players, Sony DVP-NS900V and NAD T585. I'd like to compare the 2 but since SACD is no longer supported and I feel that CD's are inferior I'd rather just listen to most of my music played FLAC from my PC without switching discs.

So with a 2 input zbox all I really need is a good USB or digital source to make this work. What is the recommendation from those who own this equipment?

Hey Mx-6,

My preferences are similar to yours.  I use my PC as a source, then USB to a DYI Monica DAC.  From there regular IC's to the ZBox.  On to the CSP2 and monoblocked SE84CS'.

Granted, my setup has been called "Mid-Fi" by some, but to me it is pure heaven! Smiley

dennis

ps: Most say to stay away from that sound card in the PC.
