I'm very new to this audiophile-stuff, and i have theese old Sony speakers, so i was wondering if i would be able to use an AMP with the speakers, without a DAC? Can anyone explain how it works? Thanks in advance.

Storm, I am new to this as well. A DAC converts a digital signal to an audio signal so if you are starting with an audio signal, a DAC is not needed. There is a type of low quality DAC in cell phones and laptops. Here is a good article about Dacs: https://www.audioadvice.com/videos-reviews/what-is-a-dac/ I do not know all the technical details about DACs but when I first heard music through a DAC, there was a significant improvement in sound quality. I used a Schiit Modi 3 with a Schiit Amplifier and a laptop.
