Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting into vinyl. From my understanding, I'm going to need to go through a phono preamp into a headphone amp. With this in mind, does going from RCA output (preamp) into a 3.5 jack (amp) degrade/lose any of the source?
I started this thread with the intention of changing the 3.5 input on my O2 to RCA and go turntable>O2>headphones but upon further investigation I don't think that will work. When the source changes from phono (preamp) to line (O2/amp) is anything lost?
If not, why not use RCA female to 3.5 male? If this would degrade the sound, surely the same happens from the preamp to the amp?
This being the case, are RCA headphones needed???
I'm a bit confused.. I just saw a large jack that goes to 3.5 at the headphone.. if it goes down like that how is it any different to 3.5?
I'm trying to budget and I'm not sure what is necessary and what implications signal changes have
