So I took the plunge. I bought the Aune T1 to go with my K450s while I decide on whether to purchase the HD650s or the He-400s. The perk of living in China is I got the upgraded version for $130 shipped. Awesome.
My question is simple, and a completely newbie question I know, but as the T1 is an amp and a DAC, will I be able to use it solely as a DAC if I decide to upgrade amps in the future?
I've heard people rave about the DAC in it, comparing it favorably with the Modi and almost any other DAC in the sub $250 range, and I know the amp is pretty stellar, but I've been eyeing a pair of HD650s together with a Bottlehead Crack at some point in the future. So if I buy the Crack to go with the He-400s/HD-650s, will I be able to bypass the amp on the T1 and use it just as a DAC.
Thanks. This is my first post on a new board in a long time, thought I was done picking up hobbies that will cost me an arm and a leg.
