hello
I have a question.
I have ordered the S.M.S.L SP 200 amplifier from Amazon at a good price and I just need a good dac that supports native MQA and DSD, but they are expensive and I only have 90 dollars, so I decided to buy a dac dongle and bought the Linsoul Audirect Atom2 MQA, and what i want to do is connect atom2 as a dac to computer and connect smsl sp200 amp with RCA to 3.5mm cable to atom2 dac dongle, because i need more amplification for my headphones.
My question is if this smsl sp200 amp connection to Atom2 dac dongle with the RCA to 3.5mm cable could work? Would the audio quality be affected?

This will work. I did the exact same thing years ago, with a Stoner Acoustics USB dongle DAC. 3.5mm to RCA-split to a headphone amp. Make sure you set Windows volume to 100% and control the actual volume with the amp.
