I currently have a headphone amp and am in need of a DAC. How would a Focusrite 2i2 work, strictly as a DAC into an amp?

i have been doing that -- it works perfectly well. you also get the benefit of being able to plug a mic into it. i use google voice for my phone, so the phone and music sounds both come out of the speakers and use the mic to talk. the setup is awesome for a home office.
the 2i2 is a bit of you get what you pay for in terms of sound. i found it to be a bit grainy and forward. on my win7 computer, it functions purely as a 16 bit device.
