I am no expert on the matter, which is why I'm coming here to double check if I'm doing things correctly.
I work long hours and I wanted good quality music. After a bit of research, I decided to go with AKG550 and the Pico DAC / AMP with ALAC library. I use an iPod classic 160gb.
Here is a quick picture: http://imageshack.us/f/12/yycs.jpg/
From what I understood reading difference articles on the matter, I simply had to get a line out cable to plug in the input and plug my headphones directly in the output next to it. This is what you see on the picture above.
However, I do see the micro-USB port on the back of the device is, I believe, the DAC. Should I be plugging my iPod in that port with an adapter, or am I doing things correctly already?
I know it will sound like a noob question to most. I'm trying to learn! I've spent alot of time reading on these forums and so far, it's fascinating.
Thank you in advance for your help.
