is it good idea to use usb dongle dac with desktop amp?

Jan 8, 2021
there are so many usb dongles with excellent measurements now, so i wonder if there is any reasons to buy an "proper"dac. Do i lose something by stacking usb dongle dac with topping L30 using 3.5-rca cable? Comparing to E30, for example. I only need a usb input. e1da 9038d dongle even have THD compensation profile for an amp connection (aka home dac mode, not sure if it hearable)
