    TIDAL > Original FLAC, how?

    Tidal does not send their files through a DAC before it gets to you. A DAC is an Digital to Analog Converter. This happens on your end. If your FLAC files sound "bad", it's probably a bad conversion, like 320kbps to 2000kbps like you said.

    GPU block advice

    There's no performance or durability difference between compression fittings and barb fittings. IMO barb fittings with hoseclamps are easier and more convenient. And cheaper....

    Trouble shooting squeal

    You definitely need both of the pci-e cables connected if your gonna play games. I bet you that "squeal" is an alarm telling you you need both cables. What PSU do you have?

    Trouble shooting squeal

    But you haven't connected all of the pci-e cables. Could that be it?

    Static sound out of nowhere

    This has happened to me too. I'm 99% certain it's Spotify that is the culprit.

    Audio Newb. HTPC Media Center questions

    Bandwith wise, HDMI 2.0 is leaps ahead of optical. You can't get Dolby true HD or DTSHD over optical.

    Audio Newb. HTPC Media Center questions

    If you are going for a 4k tv in the future you should make sure the receiver can handle HDMI 2.0 and 4k signal.

    Audio Newb. HTPC Media Center questions

    If you are using HDMI you do not need a sound card. And in the future if you are getting a receiver you would connect it with HDMI.
