I'm looking to buy an all-in-one DAC & Amp, but need a few specific features and wondered if those more knowledgeable than myself could help me get together a shortlist.
Ideally, I need something with USB input for use with my laptop (although I have optical out so not a deal-breaker if not), optical digital in and line-out for use with an Airport Express (for output to a pair of AudioEngine A5 active speakers) as well as a line in from an iPhone and it needs to be a good match for my JH13 IEMs.
If it could take a digital signal from an iPhone, that would be a bonus, but i believe the only ones that can are the Fostex HP-P1 and the CLAS but the CLAS isn't an amp and the Fostex only has digital in from an iPod/iPhone etc.
The only one I've seen so far that has everything I need is the iBasso D12 which looks good, but I've read numerous reports of issues with interference from phones which may be an issue as I plan on using it with my iPhone.
Budget isn't really a consideration, so anything from $100-$1000 really, with minimal size being important for portability.
Thanks in advance
