HK 3490's onboard dac's or stand-alone dac?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I ordered today a Project Ember amp for my headphones and I was looking at several models of dedicated dacs to match up with the Ember when I started thinking that my HK has 2 AKM PCM dacs on-board.

 

Do you think these will be fine for the Ember or should I continue my search for a dedicated DAC?

 

I'm actually leaning towards the HK just because it sounds amazing to me with my Rotel DVD/CD player and Hsu speakers. I really don't know why i didn't think of the HK from the get go.

 

I think I answered my own question but ultimately i want the best for the Ember so I would still consider a dedicated dac if needed.

Should just try using the HK 3490 for now, you can always buy a DAC in the future.

Yeah i think that sounds like the right thing to do. Not to mention saving a couple hundred dollars to boot.
