Sources for Koss Massdrop ESP/95X headphones
I recently purchased the Massdrop version of the Koss ESP-950 electrostatic headphones. Listening to an Amazon music stream to my iPhone, connected from iPhone headphone to the Energizer's miniplug, it was great. So I thought, okay, I will simply hook up the RCA plugs to my Denon AVR-2500H zone 2 RCA and enjoy everything from my receiver. But of course it's not that easy because this AVR doesn't do DAC on Zone 2 and the only thing I can play into the Energizer with this connection is Amazon music streamed to the AVR via HEOS.
So now I'm in a quandry of how to get sources to the Energizer. I'm particularly focused on my AppleTV (one version before 4K) because that can do most of the content I routinely use headphones for.
Any thoughts on how to get digital content from an AppleTV (pre-4K with HDMI and TOSlink, or post-4K with HDMI only) to the Koss Energizer? One thought I had was the Cambridge Audio MagicDac Plus with the bluetooth add-on, but I have no previous experience with DACs.
All opinions appreciated. Please let me know if a different forum would be more appropriate.
