Output/ Input help

  1. dwang040
    So I'm a little confused as to how I should wire up everything for my DAC, amp, headphone, and powered/ active speakers.

    My uDac3 would connect to my pc, and the uDac's optical out would connect to the Magni 3's optical in. Headphone goes into headphone jack. But where would I connect my powered speakers? Would I hook them up to the Magni's optical out? Or would I need one of these (https://introprose.myshopify.com/products/rigid-y-cross-connect-v3-for-schiit-stack)?

    Magni does not have optical input...

    You would have PC into uDAC3, then take the RCA output (red and white) out of that into the Magni 3 inputs. Then you would run additional RCA out of the outputs of the Magni 3 into your active speakers.

    Oops. I did not mean optical. Was talking about that earlier and confused my inputs/ outputs. Thank for the info and help.

    I'm almost as confused as you are. What optical input/output?

    Speakers go into the RCA preamped output pair, orange box. A DAC like the Modi2 goes into the input RCA pair to the left in the image.

    That's for adding another amplifier with its own preamp circuit, like another headphone amp (not sure why anyone would use two) or a speaker integrated amp while keeping the Modi and Magni hooked up electronically and physically together.

    Okay. Thank you for the clarification!
