I'm making a new computer and need a new USB DAC. Before, I didn't really care too much about audio and just use this Creative SoundBlaster Xi-Fi 60 dollar USB DAC. Any of you guys know a good USB DAC for a PC? I've looked at a lot of "top rated" lists supplied by several sites and they all seem to vary quite a bit (some of these lists dont even show the same company). My headphones are the HD650's and I use like 60-80 dollar Logitech speakers..

I don't really have a budget which is what also makes it harder to find a good one. since a lot of these "top 10/rated" lists also factor in cheapness. However, If it has insane bang for buck, I wouldn't mind. Right now, from what I've seen, I'm thinking of the Fiio e17.

If you did a search I think you would find the most common recommendations were either the E-Mu 0202/0404 or M-Audio Fast Track/Fast Track Pro.

However this new range from Focusrite has caught my eye.

Scarlet 2i2 Scarlet 8i6

I highly recommend going for the multi channel versions. They cost very little more than the simple 2 in 2 out versions and it's amazing how useful they prove to be in practice.
