USB DAC/Amp with microphone input??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

My laptop sound card just blew up so I thought it would be a great time to jump into the DAC/Amp boat. I did a lot of research and came up with the Fiio E17 as my top choice for price/quality. My only problem is I don't find any USB DAC/Amp that has microphone input (don't need a battery in the DAC/amp). Does it exist and I just missed it?

 

Thanks in advance

ANY external audio interface with a good mic-pre will suffice. Google is with you! wink.gif
If I remember correctly, the Apogee Duet 2 sports a good DAC chip and offers a nice mic-pre. However, the Duet 2 is advertised as an audio interface that works exclusively with Macs and I don't know if there are any drivers out there to make it work propely on a PC. frown.gif

If you have a PC, the RME Babyface should do the trick. I've read *somewhere* the Babyface is a Duet 2 equivalent for PCs (take it with a HUGE grain of salt). biggrin.gif
