Aloha and thanks in advance for the help! Im very new to all the additional equipment aside from just the computer to speaker setup and will gladly take any tips and advice you have to offer. I realize there is probably a thread on here thats asking the same or a similar question, but i have yet to find it, if you have a link please let me know!
I recently ordered a pair of audioengine A2 and am looking into a DAC/headphone amp combo, i have read a decent amount and currently looking at the audioengine D1 and the Topping TP30. My intended us is just listening to music through my speakers and headphones, no recording or anything fancy. I plan to connect the DAC to my macbook via usb, and from there to my A2ʻs via RCA while also having a headphone jack and volume control on the front of the DAC. If you have any feedback on either DAC (already paired with A2ʻs would be ideal) or have another setup in mind for a price point of around $180 please let me know!
