Hello, I'm currently looking for options to power these babies. I'd like to use balanced connections so TRS or XLR with a budget of $200. The following are my options:
1) Tascam us-366 = USB or Optical in to TRS
2) Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 = USB to TRS
3) Get a RCA to TRS or XLR cable and get a DAC that supports USB and RCA out (examples, Schiit modi)
Would #3 make me lose sound quality? Also, how useful is 24/192k, I've noticed that mostly it's 24/96 but Tascam has optical in which offers that high kHz which I'm not even sure if I need. Does choosing that make my purchase slightly "futureproof"?
Thanks a lot guys, I'm looking forward to the replies.
