DAC/Amp for T5P with RCA out for Monitors

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So I just got a pair of T5Ps and I'm looking for a decent Amp/DAC unit to drive them. The Amp/DAC must also have RCA out so I can connect them to my monitors. Since the T5Ps are low-impedance and very efficient, I would like a low impedance headphone output without too much power. The sound should be fairly warm or neutral (bright doesn't pair well with clean/neutral T5P). I will be using it at home so I do not need battery power. By Amp/DAC I mean one unit that has both a DAC and an amp section for headphones, or a separate DAC and Amp. My budget is $500 or below. Thanks in advance!

Cheapest amp I can think of with preamp outs is the Schiit Asgard 2.  You can use the rest of the money on a DAC.

Thanks for the suggestion! I didn't know Schiit came out with a new version of the Asgard with preamp outs. This thing is exactly what I need.

What would be a good USB DAC for the rest of my budget? ($250)

I have seen good reviews of the ODAC and Modi,

Modi will get the job done, and its cheaper than the ODAC.  I'm not really up to date on budget DACs though.
