I'll join the others before me, with the addition that you need an Amanero Combo USB card that works with exclusive processing (natively supported). Excluding the bugs of the Daphile running device. So far I have used Windows 8.1 OS and Amarra Luxe 4 player. I always review my current settings from time to time, now the Amanero card has made it my preferred player. Brilliant sound, thanks to the developers !

Without the aforementioned USB card, the result is heavily influenced by the quality of the platform using Daphile, which could be bad. My own experience.

I've fiddled around with computer music for about 10 years. Have tried quite a few combinations, including on-the-edge programs like Audiophile Linux, Euphony, etc. Hugely frustrating. Unless you're a computer whiz, or are willing to spend countless hours learning, you're quickly out of your depth. Even then, these programs represent ever shifting sound quality and operational targets, and you must have the time and patience to keep up, if you don't want to get left out.
That's why I always end up back with my Daphile machine. It is stable and simple, with high quality sound. The only thing I wish for is a larger album cover display.
Considering the big chunks of money you spend on some of these other programs the fact that Daphile is free is a huge selling point. BUT, I often wish there was a way to at least donate some money to Kimmo for this monumental effort.
