Solved! Laptop PC that's connected to DAC connection to Sony AV Receiver (of 2012) for music listening


Aug 14, 2014
I want to connect a DAC that can be connected to laptop PC, then to be connected to an AV Receiver. I have a Topping D10 DAC that I can connect with USB to my Acer Aspire V3 laptop computer of 2013; AMD A8, 8 GB of system memory. I exchanged original Hitachi 750GB HDD for a Samsung SSD 850 EVO of 250GB. Original hard disk drive is now used as a back up drive.

Therefore, from the Topping D10 DAC USB connection to PC I want to connect long RCA cables of 20, or 25 feet in length to my Sony STR-DH520 AV Receiver (2012) of 85 watts.

Then can I connect Topping D10 DAC to Sony STR-DH520 Receiver to RCA AUDIO IN inputs that are for, "SAT/CATV"? I already have a Coaxial RCA cable connected to input of the Sony AV Receiver from a SACD/DVD Player; so that option for connection is not actually available.

Therefore, can a possible connection be made to the above RCA Audio input jacks of Sony AV Receiver? I want to listen to music from Amazon Music Prime, or Spotify. Thank you for any reasonable advice that can be given.
