I am interested in purchasing a Little Dot tube amplifier...not sure on the exact model yet. I plan to use the amplifier with my Sennheiser HD 25-1 ii with my MacBook Pro and with .wav audio files.
I believe the MacBook has a decent on-board DAC but was wondering:
1. Would a separate DAC be beneficial? If so, what do you recommend with the Little Dots?
2. I have seen some "hybrid" DAC/Tube amp combos. Is it better to have the DAC built into the amp, or for the DAC to be separate? If there is no difference, could you recommend a DAC/Tube amp combo?
Sorry if my lingo is incorrect. I am just starting into my electrical engineering classes in school and find this all very interesting.
