Pico DAC to Preamp to Amp

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

Long time (as in reeeeally long) time lurker. Never had to register because most of my questions were answered via search, but I have one that I couldn't really find anywhere else.

 

I'm thinking about getting a external DAC as my Titanium HD's EMS is just intolerable at higher volumes. The Pico DAC seems to be the only cheap/decent USB option.

 

I have a Adcom GFP 565 preamp and a Adcom GFA 535 II amp.

 

Do I  gain any audio fidelity by connecting the DAC to the preamp first and then the amp? Or is it better to just go Pico DAC---> Amp?

 

I was also looking at the ODAC DAC as well. Does anyone know if it has a RCA line out?

The JDS Labs ODAC comes in 2 versions, a 3.5mm output and a RCA output.

Would a 3.5mm --> RCA do as well as a regular RCA cable?
