Check it out like I mentioned, if you like what you hear, then you like what you hear. I'm not saying anything bad about dac in the MBP, but like I mentioned for $99.00U.S. the Modi definitely sounds better to me. So for a bit more than $200.00U.S., you can purchase both the LD1+ and the Schiit Modi.

BTW, you will not be listening to analog through the headphone out. The optical out is beyond the headphone out.

I'm sorry, I meant to say, you will not be listening to the optical output through the headphone output. The optical output is located deeper inside the headphone output, first comes the analog out, then deeper inside is the optical output, and if you have a external dac with an optical input you need to buy a1/8 mini to a toss link (optical output cable) to use it..

Ok, doesnt matter. I just want to know if its better to use splitter or I can go out from my PM6004 with recorder Tape Out connection. What is better?

So what is more important? A external DAC or external AMP? I can't decide between the EF2A (comes with a dac) and the little dot i+ (and get a dac later)

Dac is more important if you dont have one. I have, so for me headphone amp is something to consider

The DAC is far more important than the amp for Grado headphones, because they have such low impedance. I have SR125is, and going from my Dell sound card to an amp to the headphones doesn't add much, and they are both 32 ohms. That said I've never heard the EF2A, but I'd go with that, because the LD 1+ has an audible noise floor.
