I am looking for a headphone amp/dac that has RCA out for my powered studio monitors controlled via the volume knob on the headphone amp. My NG27 works like this but my Topping D2 does not, the volume knob on the amp is bypassed.
Next thing I want is a headphone amp that has a line in whether it be RCA or 3.5mm. My D2 has this but my NG27 does not :(
I am looking at the AUNE X1 but I cannot find any info on whether the volume knob controls the RCA line out volume. That is really vital to me and I really want a headphone DAC that can do that. Basically what I need is an audio interface for my studio monitors in which I can easily adjust the volume and switch between at least a couple of sources. Hence why I want an analog in. Really I don't need the DAC functionality as much as I need the interface and volume control. I have a sound card on my desktop so it's not that bad in the DAC department.
Any help much appreciated :)
BTW, when powering off my D2, there is a loud pop sent to either my headphones or my studio monitors and I am worried about damaging my speakers. Is this normal? My NG27 does not do this... I thought I was upgrading when I got the D2 :(
