Thread Starter 

I have a newb questions guys.  How do I connect the PICO as a DAC only to the WA6?  What kind of cable do I need? WA6 has RCA input only. 

 

Thanks

you need a cable with male 1/8" on one end, and male RCA on the other.

 

several manufacturers make these now, as this is how one would connect an ipod to their hifi.

 

monster makes one called the "icable" for example.

you can find it at radioshack, best buy, etc.

Thanks Wuss.  However after seeing the connections, I wonder if I should go with a dedicated DAC instead...

Well the pico has a pretty good dac section by any standard.

If you want to step up, from what ive read you'll have to spend over 500 bucks to get better sound than the pico.
Don't let the 1/8 connection bother you. It will still transmit a good signal to your amp.

I used a Pico DAC/amp for the DAC only sending the analog signal to a Woo 3. I did this for over a year with no problems. I used low gain at max volume.

Glad to hear the PICO is such an capable DAC .  Spent sometime yesterday reading, the Audio-gd D19 DSP1 should be awesome with the WA6.  My headphone Denon D7000 should be here Tuesday and will take sometime to decide.  Thanks for all the help guys.
