    What is a DAC and why is it important?
    If you’re a music lover and you want the best listening experience, one of the key ingredients in the quality of your sound is the digital-to-analog converter or DAC.

    A DAC takes the digital information on your computer and translates it into analog sound you can hear through your headphones and speakers.
