Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 as a DAC

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

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.
