The only thing I might suggest are external hard drives, at least two, one to house your master library and one to use as a back up using Time Machine. You do not need any kind of ‘external soundcard’.

an external hd Will improve sound quality??

On my MacBook I only have 2 USB port, one is alread y in use with the arcAm dac, is going to be any problem if I connect to the second USB to the external HD?? I have one with it's own power supply.


Many thanks
