Hey there, I'm beginning to learn about computer audio outside the amplified speakers most people use, and I've already made the purchase and have been using the following:
- Cambridge S30-N speakers
- AT ATH-AD700 headphones
- AudioSource AMP-100 Amplifier
- Behringer UCA202 DAC
I've been running the speakers from the USB DAC into an RCA splitter into the amp, and the headphones directly from my mobo's audio jack, because I hear using the headphone jack on the DAC for headphones isn't that great.
Which made me wonder about improving the sound when using the headphones, so I purchased an Asus Xonar DG sound card. I was wondering if this overall setup would be good or if there are better options?
For example, is there a DAC I could use to run both my speakers and headphones off of together? Perhaps I could have both connected and choose which to use versus having to select an audio device from Playback Devices?
I am also curious if I'd be better off running the speakers directly from the sound card versus my current DAC?
