Hey guys. So i'm getting my fx audio dac x6 probably later this week, waiting for it to arrive and was wondering how to connect it to powered speakers. The speakers are mackie mr624. If someone knows of something better for around the same amount of money, please go ahead. If the headphones are not plugged in at the same time, does that mean i can control the volume for the speakers with the knob that controls the headphone volume ? Later i intend to use the x6 as dac only and probably buy something like jds atom for an amp. I don't know if thats a good combo. Does that mean i could switch my speakers from x6 to atom then ? If someone can provide a list of cables i would need in order to connect x6 to atom and to the speakers i would appreciate it. Im really not that knowledgeable on the topic. And yes i also intend to use my headphones with this setup incase anyone is wondering. Its gonna be like a 50/50 use case scenario.
