It is been difficult to find, so maybe that should tell me something about their popularity. Currently, source of my music is flac files on my laptop and then thru a fiio e11 to either Sennheiser HD380, Grado SR60, or Beyerdynamic DTX 501P. Actually the Beyerdynamics are more often used with my Samsung Galaxy Tablet. I do the vast amount of my listening thru my laptop. So I started looking for something a bit more convenient that would take up less of a footprint and weight of a laptop. 

 

I was thinking of the tp32 with the Micca Spec connected via 3.5mm to RCA AV Out Cable. Then I could connect my flac files to USB inpurt of Micca Spec. Granted, I would only plan to do listening via the headphone jack on the TP32, but to me this sounds like a more convenient set up aligned with my use of flac files and preference for listening with headphones.

 

Am I thinking thru the connections right? I do not have a DAC so the indicated USB DAC capability of the tp32 would introduce me to the technology. For a combined cost of $170 on amazon, it seems like I have found a good solution of source, power, and listening. Any critiques and comments appreciate.
