Rebuilt my system after I got robbed.
Before: Alpine 9886 with audio coming from Asus Infinity Tablet via the Alpine 3.5mm interface. Aftermarket speakers but nothing high end. Sound quality great.
Now: Alpine CDE 121 with audio coming from Asus Memo Tab via a 3.5mm to 3.5mm interface on the front. Different sub (lil better) but same interior. Sound quality bad.
Would a lower end USB DAC NuForce uDAC-2 help the SQ? The CDE 121 has a USB interface on the front.
Let me know what you think, thanks.
