Schiit Magni 2 Uber amp/Modi 2 Uber DAC and Emotiva A-100 (a rather powerful headphone amp as it draws from the main power amp rather than a separate IC chip often found in other integrated amps or receivers). The A-100 is connected to an Integra DTR 6.4 AVR pre-outs. The DTR 6.4 acts as a pre-amp/DAC with multiple sources.

I use a burson audio soloist MKII. No dedicated DAC, all music comes via analog out from an Oppo UDP-203 and an Oppo BDP-95. I like the soloist as it has two analog inputs for hooking up both players.

Supercharged Song Towers, Oppo BDP-203, Anthem MRX-520, LG B6 OLED
Headphone Rig: Oppo BDP-95, Burson Audio Soloist MKII Headphone amp/ Sennheiser HD800S, Sennheiser HD650

Red face iFi nano BL dac /amp

Hi. New to the forum but this is an easy one for my first post. I use an iFi nano BL dac/amp for my desktop set-up - used with a Macbook. I sometime hook this up to my phone for out and about as well. It was an easy first purchase for a more portable type set-up. Got great reviews and was a decent price for me. It packs a punch though.

Love my family, love audio, have a thing for fizzy sweets.

I just purchased my first desktop setup: Topping D10 and Schiit Magni 3 feeding my Beyerdynamic DT770 Pros (250 Ohm).


I just did not know what I was missing...I have had the 770s for many years, but they really have come alive especially with quality recordings/streaming.

LG OLED55B8PUA / Sony UBP-X700 / Apple TV 4K
Denon AVR-X4200W / Music Hall MMF-5 (Ortofon 2M Red)
Monitor Audio GS10 / Monitor Audio GSLCR / Monitor Audio Silver FX / (4) Monitor Audio Pro-IC65
