Hey there everyone,
I've been browsing these forums for quite some time now, I'm considering buying some new audio equipment. I've got a pair of M-Audio BX5a deluxe monitors, Grado SR-60i's, and a Yamaha MW10 mixing board.
My main question is whether if it would be a good idea to purchase a DAC, I really don't need to have a USB mixing board at my desk anymore. I've been looking at the TubeMagic D1 and the DAC from Emotiva, as a possible options that would have the features I would want.
I also was considering potentially getting a portable DAC like the uDAC2 because the internal audio in my thinkpad is terrible. I do plan on getting better headphones eventually, but should that come before the DAC? Will my studio monitors benefit from a better DAC, rather than my MW10 board? Thanks for your input!
