1. I was recommended this dac, and I'm wondering is it an amp as well? it says this and I'm not too sure what it even means if it's not an amp. I want to stay near $50, what would be a good cheap amp to go with that, or if there's something even better like a DAC/amp combo for a bit more I'm ok. I'm also wondering what would be the biggest bang for my buck with this if things get to expensive; for $50 would just a DAC, or just an amp be better for sound? Or is it worth it to pay a bit more to get both? Sorry for the long ramble ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
2. Also what about the Asus Xonar DG? Would that be a good buy or will I missing out on a lot of quality?
3. How does sound go to my headphones? does it go DAC to amp to headphones, or amp to DAC to headphones?
