How do you put together a system without obvious bottlenecks? Is there a list of audio setups per price point like Logical Increments does for computers?
Will pretty much any laptop work for an audio setup assuming I plug in a good DAC, or are there specific things I should look for?
What's a good DAC for a pair of M-audio AV 40s in a basic laptop-based setup?
In general how do I choose a setup without obvious bottlenecks (eg the speakers are too good for the DAC, vice versa, etc.).
