I'm quite new to the hobby and I'm looking for a device that would allow me to connect both my computer and a record player to a Little Dot MK III (already ordered - so excited), somewhere up to £150 if it's a viable choice, though I could wait and go higher if needed.
My current kit
Creative X-fi Fatality Pro (happy with this for gaming but leaves a lot to be desired everywhere else)
Little Dot MK III
Sennheiser HD 555's
I've been looking at these, but I've not been able to find much on either if they'd work how I want or how they actually sound (un-bias reviews). I assume I could use them to switch between inputs with phono out to the little dot?
Aune Mini DAC MK2 SE
Aune X1 DAC
Xiang Sheng DAC-01A (maverick D1 clone?)
However I'm also considering grabbing a dedicated DAC and buying a USB record player and connecting it through my computer, though I don't know if it's a good idea. I'm thoroughly confused as to which route to take. Any advice on a decent player would be welcome too!
If it helps I was considering the Project Debute III record player, and the little dot DAC_1 or HRT music streammer II+.
Thanks in advance all!
