Best portable Amp/Dac with RCA output

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Trying to simplify my setup now.  Want a portable Amp/Dac for traveling with my laptop and then when I am at home, just output it to a desktop amp via RCA for bigger headphones.  Only two I know is the U-Dac2 and Ibasso D7.  D7 has a quality DAC chip, but I heard it is flaky with driver issue and U-Dac2, I had it before and the DAC is only decent.  Any other recommendation?

The D7 isn't too bad, and I've never had any issues with mine. If you're not too anal about it why not get a good line-out to RCA cable from say, ALO, which will be more versatile with different amp/DAC combos.

Well, I think he wants one with RCA output. I think D7 is the way to go.

I have thought about that as well.  Will the sound be as good through output to the amp.  With 3.5mm, I guess there is more room to make the jack faulty.

A good 3.5mm to RCA shouldn't really have issues in terms of failure at the mini plug, as long as it is strain relieved.
