Has anyone used the Popcorn hour with a decent DAC?

I am using a Squeezebox duet at the moment, but I would like a decent backup. The popcorn hour looks a possibility.

I am not bothered about the video side, or even networking it. I would simply stick a 500GB quiet drive in it and copy all my collection on to it.

Has anyone tried this with an external DAC?

Probably backup.

But have had a few networking problems recently, and while I can always sort it out, it's a right royal Pain in the bum when I settle down in my listening sofa, and I have to go sort out the network for 20 mins or whatever.

 

I quite like the idea of being able to simply switch to a solid, 100% reliable source. It does mean having the TV on, but thats ok.

 

I would have used the PS3, but it is a little too noisy, has an awful operating system for music media control (large numbers of files take an age to list), and more importantly, doesn't support FLAC.
