PCDP =>Y adapter => IC => AMP?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I want to use my good ICs and a Y-Adapter to connect into a amp. Is this going to be degrading or harmful(directionality, imp of the adapter, etc.) ?

I would rather buy an adapter for a few bucks and use my good ICs then shell out $20 for a decent PCDP IC.

The directionality of this ratshack adapter is actually supposed to be in the opposite direction, any problems? :

directionality doesn't matter. There aren't any components in there besides the actual wires and connector.

Directionality can matter if the cables have single-ended grounds. Whether this will be audible is another matter.

would it make a difference since headphones (unless you get the monoblock HD-600) have a common ground anyway? I thought most amps have a common ground as well.
