One DAC to Two Amps ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have a MacBook Pro > Schiit BiFrost DAC

 

Is it OK to connect the BiFrost via RCA cables to a 1/8" Y-cable spiltter to feed my portable iBasso Warbler P4 amp, AND my Denon UD-M31 amp which is connected to loudspeakers?

 

I figured this could be a better solution than to connect my headphones to the UD-M31 headphone jack, assuming the P4 is a better headphone amp.

 

Sure, I could just connect my iPhone to the P4 via my HRT iStreamer, but the user-interface on the Macbook Pro is more convenient.

Connecting the audio train in this manor will work just fine.

 

Mac--->DAC--->RCA Analog out--->Headphone amp In ( stereo ).  I see no issues with that.

thank you.

 

I have it now set up as:

 

MBP > Bifrost > RCA cables out > 1/8" Y-cable splitter > male-to-male 1/8" cable > P4 > DT 770

and

                                                    1/8" Y-cable splitter > male-to-RCA cable > Denon UD-M31 > loudpseakers

 

 

I have not yet done the A-B test.

I guess you may end up with mono going into the two amps, but as long as you are using an actual a cable that takes the left and right channel on the DAC and splits it into two independent stereo plugs you should be good.
