Recently getting back into HiFi audio. I originally sold my HD650 headphones but found a great deal today and bought another pair.
My Original setup was a Gilmore Lite AMP and dedicated power supply by Head-Amp paired with some HD650 headphones. I always ran into issues with static and popping as the amp was plugged into my sound blaster titanium HD sound card. How do I bypass the sound card with a digital source?
My New setup will be
15" Retina MBP
Gilmore Lite AMP + PSU
I'd rather not plug the AMP into the macbook's headphones port, is there a way to make this connection digital without amplifying the signal twice or causing issues?
Preferably i'd have a USB device that has a Red / White RCA output into the amp.
is this what i need?
or is there a better option for cheaper?
