which is a better purchase? and future proof, better build, quality, sound...
 
i probably have the schiit range wrong. i want to connect the dac to a pair of powered speakers via rca and i would like volume control? i also want to the option of connecting headphones to the device? and ideally a switch (to switch from speaker to headphone) or if its a case of plugging in headphones which cut off the speaker, thats suffice.
 
speakers are yamaha hs7
still need to buy headphones
 
i know the audio-gd has a switch, so i can select headphones or speakers (keep headphones plugged in if needed)
 
thank you

The NFB-15 comes with a dedicated switch for choosing between the headphone and line-output (speakers).
A would guess (?) the Magni 2 Uber auto senses and switches depending on if headphones are plugged in.
I like the idea that my NFB-15.32 has dual DAC chips :)

a headphone amp would be good but also something that would give sound from pwoered speakers too
