DAC Need, could someone please enlighten me

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have a little dot mkIII headphone amp. I'm in the process of building a phono stage vinyl and headphone setup along with this but cant afford to buy it all at once. I'm going to buy the turntable last. I have music on my iphone which I'd like to listen to through the headphone amp and to burn in the tubes. I've read that the iphone has a built in dac. Could someone please tell me if i can just use a 3.5mm headphone to rca jack lead to connect straight into the back of the little dot or if i need another piece of equipment to play the iphone through it?

You can use a cable going from the iPhone's headphone jack to the inputs on the MKIII.

If your iPhone has the LOD port, then get a FiiO L cable or other brand, as the LOD port provides a slightly cleaner analog output signal.
