A DAC should output a line level analogue signal that can then be amplified, yours is a bit more than a straight DAC so this procedure sets up a fixed line level output from your device......But if I understand correctly this doesnt really bypass the preamp does it?
A DAC is not a DAC without some "amplification" or else how would it be able to transfer sound?
I seriously need some HiFi education
I see thank you very much.....and this is why I am now in a need for the real one. Straight DAC.A DAC should output a line level analogue signal that can then be amplified, yours is a bit more than a straight DAC so this procedure sets up a fixed line level output from your device......
Unfortunately there are a great number within your budget.....can you get to audition any?I see thank you very much.....and this is why I am now in a need for the real one. Straight DAC.
1. Should match with Preamp ATC CA2....so rca out on the DAC.
2. Remote just to turn it on and off
3. Price..... around 4500 dollars
4. No Chi-fi
For some reason I just don´t want anything that reminds me of a turd in the name, if you know what I mean
The one I found so far:
Well if it is only DAC function and it doesnt use that many WATT its ok. Then I can ditch the remoteYes... The ones I saw with remote controls seem to be DAC/headphone amplifiers
Bel Canto or Mytek Brooklyn DAC+ might be worth looking into, I know they tend to come with remote controls
It's £2389 and still has headphone amp and volume control
I have no idea where you are going.Well. Either way I will update my experience with CA2 + 40A.
it is so easy to get confused.
people are saying not to preamp etc.
But then why are musician using a DI box before the input…approved to be better(my own ears)
This should not sound better according to the non-preampers
I am only gonna audition it to start with.Preamping the RME with a CA2 is a pointless expense, unless you are need to use it as a volume control for other analogue sources. You will not get "better sound". RME can and works great connected straight into active speakers.
