I recently added a HP100 to my current WA6SE+DA100 mix and I find it to be a very nice solid state compliment to the WA6SE, and it's synergy with the DA100 is fantastic (not surprisingly, as they're designed to be used together).
This bring to me to the point of this topic though... The DA100 just like most other DACs only have one pair of RCA outputs. I really like the DA100 with the WA6SE as well so I'm not going to separate those two anytime soon... and reaching back to switch the RCA cable every time I want to try the other amp is bothersome and likely bad for the cable and the jacks in the long run... so the obvious solution I figure is to invest in a RCA splitter, or a switchbox of some sort.
What I'd like is for the splitter to have as little impact to the sound quality as possible, and for it to put as least stress to the RCA jacks of the DA100 as possible... as using a standard splitter would apply additional weight to the jacks (I figure this wouldn't be a problem anyway as the RCA outputs are solidly built, but still). I'm never going to use the two amps at the same time so no need to worry about the signal splitting or whatever. As long as each outputs work fine.
I see that the standard plain jane RCA splitters they sell on ebay look like this:
or the ones that are on more of an Y angle:
then there are audioquest ones that look like this, obviously much more expensive:
Which ones would you recommend? I'd rather not invest in a switchbox as it's only for two amps, but would that be a better idea instead?
Thanks in advance for any input.
