Hey there,
Not a long time ago, I made a poor purchasing decision, and went with the Sennheiser HD700 and O2+ODAC.
Both are great, but for someone who like it more warm and laid-back kinda sound, I just can't listen to music with it anymore. The treble really hurts.
 
Now I'm about to change my gear. I'm thinking about the Sennheiser HD650 + Bottlehead Crack w/ Speedball.
One thing that I do miss here is a DAC. And since I'm still not a pro, I need help with putting it all together.
 
I was thinking about getting the Schiit Modi 2 Uber DAC for my PC, along with the Bottlehead Crack and my PC speakers. The thing is I don't get it is how am I gonna connect both my Bottlehead Crack AND the PC speakers to the DAC if it has only one RCA input?
Until now, with my O2+ODAC, I just plug it with USB directly to my PC, and connect my PC speakers to it with RCA cables, but with my new upcoming gear, I won't have amp combined with DAC, so how can I connect both the PC speakers and the Bottlehead Crack to the Schiit Modi 2 Uber?
I guess it's a silly question, but I am really not an expert enough.
 
Thanks for anyone who's helping!

The HD700 treble makes them a somewhat polarizing headphone.

I would suggest getting your HD650s first, then decide on what you need next. Maybe you might want to keep the ODAC and get a Magni 2 Uber since it has pre-outs for plugging in your speakers. But you should really wait and hear your HD650s to decide what direction you want to go next for an amp.
