Looking to copy FLAC files onto CD or Tape, what do you guys recommend for a DAC? Guy at my stereo shop recommended the Audio Quest Cobalt Dragonfly but its 400 bones, anything out there at a more reasonable price point or is this really the one I need?

Guess I don't understand why you need a DAC to put FLACs onto CDs or why you would want to put FLACs onto tape.

Yeah, I used to burn FLACs onto CDs with just about any old media software. I think I used to use Roxio.

Thanks! Have a great OG Analog pioneer system with a deck, love putting tapes on to listen, not wired up for digital here nor really interested

Do you but the amount of energy you'll put into finding people who are still trading, mailing, trading, copying, verifying, waiting, etc will be crazy.

Live Music Archive on your phone, whatever output you have on your phone to RCA and plug right into your home stereo system.

Do it all the time....

Same dude. When we moved I realized I didn't listen to my tapes anymore or even have a player. Gave away all but a handful of shows. I've lived 2 years now in a new home and haven't pulled out any of my CD's. Between LMA and Spotify my needs are met. And the beauty is, I spend more time listening, enjoying, playing along, etc than the pedantic search for better sources, every version ever, complete years, omg my OCD was nutso....
