    sure it does - sound doesn't just get to the speakers telepathically :D

    Course you may need an amp between the PC and the speakers if they are hi-fi types.

    does the DAC have an output, other than to the speakers? if not than you will need a 3.5mm jack to stereo and then run this to the speakers or to the amp.
