My current setup: Apple Lossless library stored on WinXP (hidden in a closet) running Squeezebox Server > Squeezebox Touch via RCa to Power Amp > Speakers
As you can see I don't have a dedicated pre-amp. To control the system I use the remote control that came with Squeezebox or via my Macbook (via remote connection to Squeezebox server on WinXP).
Anything wrong with this set up? What's the weak link here? Will I get better sound with an outboard DAC?
