Jukebox project - USB DACs

Mike Johnston over at c60crew writes about playing music on a computer. As I have discovered, the default computer audio jack does not play music well. One solution for the stereophile could be the USB DAC.
Enter the USB DAC. "DAC" stands for digital-to-analogue converter, or the circuitry needed to turn the digital music file into a music signal to send to the speakers. "USB" simply signifies that instead of using a cable with a 1/8th" headphone jack on one end and standard RCA connectors on the other, so you can plug the speakers into the computer's headphone jack, you connect the new DAC to the computer via a common USB connection.
