I use my MacBook Pro as a source to my Schiit Bifrost using Toslink cable.   Mac, easy, fine, plug it in and forget it.

I ordered the Schiit USB Gen 2 for the show because I figured USB is more prevalent.

 

I didn't think about the sources.  What will folks be walking around with source wise?

Laptops to the DAC or stuff like MP3 players direct to an amp?

 

My amp only has RCA inputs.

Should I make an adapter?

most people are going to have tables with a mac / laptop w/ foobar. most dacs should have rca as well.

 

as for me.. LOL i aint bringing my whole computer with me so I'm going to be using my friend's music.

I don't think I worded my question very well.

I'm a guy with a table and gear.

I have either RCA's on the amp or toslink / USB on my DAC for folks to connect to

I only use a Mac.  I was curious what source equipment might come walking up to the tables.

What kind of interfaces.  Should I make some adapters?

I think that should be fine, most people use toslink / usb anyways

Two questions for anyone who knows:

 

(1)  I want to purchase an iDevice compatible DAC.  Probably some version of the AlgoRhythm Solo, but I'd be open to alternatives if there are any.  Would the meet be a place where I could experiment with portable DACs to help me decide which to buy?  Or would it be better to buy a DAC before the meet.

 

(2)  Similarly, will the meet be a place where I could try out amps to use with my AKG K1000s?  These don't work with regular headphone amps, so I'm unsure about this.
