Help with sources providing Coaxial and/or Optical outputs

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Currently I have a portable rig consisting of Galaxy S4>FiiO E07k> V-Moda M80. The urge to upgrade is getting to me, and after some research I've decided on a home rig consisting of ????>FiiO D03K>Bottlehead Crack>HD 600. My reasoning being that the Bottlehead Crack + HD600 combo is supposedly really good for the price. However the Bottlehead Crack needs RCA inputs. So a DAC that outputs RCA would make sense. However of the DACs I've looked at, they all use either Coaxial or Optical inputs. Then my problem is, well, I don't have any source that outputs coaxial or optical. 


Will I need to get a new source? Are there cheap 3.5>Coaxial converters, and do they sound all right?

Hi! Do you ever game? If so, look into the xonar u3.

 

Else, I'd suggest you look into the hifimediy sabre DAC, which has usb input, and it is fairly cheap (and said to perform really well).
