hmm... I like controlling the volume via a volume dial.
So the issue now is, is it worth paying for the extra "convenience" for the volume dial at my fingertips.
But IF getting the dac/amp, does not improve the sound, then I might forgo the idea of getting one atm.
Thank you! Hmmm Ok... so I would need a pre-amp.
My source is my computer, so would require a USB input DAC. I might get headphone in the future, saving money.
I did have headphones (AKG702) a really long time ago 8 years, but didn't know I needed an amp. I sold those off after 2 months, and...
I am very new to this. I just got an active speaker (Edifier S880DB). I am looking at Dac/amp for the speaker and to control the speakers from the amp.
So based on the price in my country, the:
Price of SMSL M500 = Price D50s + A50s > Price Schiit magni+modi = Price E30 +L30.
