It seems that many integrated amps (with built in DACs) will only work with a laptop connected to USB, as the USB port requires power from the laptop. I want a wired connection from a USB iPad.
I know some people have luck with the Apple Camera Connection Kit for Lightning devices, but that...
Anyone know of a DAC or DSP+DAC in the $200-350 range that supports optical in and XLR out? I'm trying to leverage a couple extra amp spots i have on a Parasound A52+ for my home office bookshelf speakers i use. I want to use optical in because the run from my computer is about 40' and USB...
An interesting and affordable DAC.
Uses an AK4493EQ DAC, 32 bit 768kHz, 3.5mm and 2.5mm jacks, metal body, comes with USB C cable and USB A adaptor.
I have one arriving, someday…
If anyone has one now, let us know how it is.

The Activo CT10 has a line out and a USB out socket. What would be the best way in terms of sound quality to connect the device up to my hifi amp.
If USB out, I presume I would need a separate DAC to connect to the Amp, but given the device itself operates as a DAC would this be redundant?
Hi, silly question, or not? I have a link to my DAC from PC USB port. And from DAC to Pre-amp. Since it is primarily a headphone DAC. Should I control the music at pre-amp by setting the DAC pot to fully open, or just half way? And then controlling the volume by the pre-amp nob?

I have a Marantz SR7002 receiver that I connect via HDMI to my laptop which runs Tidal in "Exclusive mode". I am just wondering what people think would be the 'weak link' in my setup (I have high sensitivity DIY speakers set up very well that image wonderfully and the room optimized as best as...
Proposed use: Want to connect the DAC to a computer and connect the DAC to a Sherwood RX-4503 receiver connected to Wharfedale Evo 4.2 speaker with a sub woofer. The goal is to improve the quality of the audio by adding the DAC. Thank you.
I think i have brain over load from so much reading....
Couple years ago I found a pair of perfectly good condition B&W DM-303 in the trash...Figured perfect for my computer / office. At the time I just grabbed a little Lepy amp for them, but don't feel like it is enough and...
I'm getting this Samsung TV. I have an old amp with a couple of large tower speakers (no receiver) - the amp only has RCA input. I am wondering what is the easiest/cheapest way for me to be able to control the volume with my TV remote.
I currently have a DAC between my tv and amp with a toslink...
I am looking for some help to decide what to do?
I have an old, but very good, Rotel RSP-1098 AV processor connected to two RMB-1066 amplifiers. My setup lacks HDMI support, Dolby digital Plus, TrueHD and Dolby Atmos. I love to watch movies and I have just got a 4K TV and an apple TV 4K...
I've currently got an Accuphase E-460 amplifier + Hegel HD25 DAC.
I'm considering getting an Accuphase DAC-50 board for the E-460, and selling the Hegel HD25. Mostly for convenience, and hopefully the same or better audio quality.
Now I just wonder if this would result in better or...
I need for my new HD 58x jublilee headphone, due to arrive any day now, *maybe* an amp and or a dac too, if I really need one.
But I have a buying problem!
I have a nice computer with a creative soundblaster Audigy 5/rx card. the music plays well. I also have a Sennheiser HD 280 pro.
I really have no business on this forum because I am far from being an audiophile... but I'm stuck in the house like so many others, and while cleaning out my home office I found a pair of JBL LSR305's that my neighbor once gave me before moving away. I plugged them into my PC and holy smokes...

I have the Anker Mars 2 pro projector. I am looking for an external amp to increases the volume to drive external speakers. some videos (like from Youtube) sound good on the internal speakers. But some movies like on the Disney Network are very very low in volume. I can hardly hear. So...
Well I have noticed it is pretty much impossible to find any AMP, Receiver or even Audio Media player that has a USB input for my ipod for music, charging and control.
I called Onkyo, Yamaha, Denon and Marantz... and after about 50 "no sorry you cant do that" one of them finally told me that...
