JR from Detroit, MI

Episode 1098 (1:51:48)

Cambridge Audio DAC Magic

JR is building a gaming system and he wants to add some great audio. What about the JBL speakers? The one's he's looking at are made in china and he's concerned about the build quality. Scott says that just because they're made in China doesn't mean they're no good. There's good and bad speakers from anywhere. Scott would recommend going with larger 8" woofers to go deeper in the bass. He also needs a digital audio converter. Scott says that Cambridge Audio makes a good one and the chatroom suggests DAC Magic.
