Internal DACs in laptops, desktops, and phones 2017-11-03 18:03:57 Dear colleagues, I have a few questions about internal DACs in laptops and desktops.1a. How can one identify the DAC chip inside a laptop, desktop, or a phone? Is there some software that can probe the chip to identify it?1b. Is there an online database of computers and prones with their DAC chips?2. Why are internal DACs so often maligned? Is there any scientifically defensible reason for this attitude or is it just audiophoolery? 3. Where can one find data on measured performance of internal DACs? I mean, not just the manufacturers' data sheets, but actual measurements, that take into account the implementation.Many thanks in advance for you answers.
