Hey guys. Can anyone give me a simple description of what a DAC amp is, and what it does? From what I can piece together, it helps high impedance headphones increase their volume output...is this accurate to any extent? Thanks!

A DAC/Amp is a term for a device that has a DAC (digital/analog converter) and an amplifier built into it.
A DAC is required to change the digital signal into an analog signal so that you can hear it. An amplifier, as the name implies, will amplify this signal.
