My current setup is Audiophile 2496 out to either Klipsch Promedia 2.1 speakers or to Travagans Red -> HFI-780 headphones.

Can I just split the at the 2496 with something like this without degrading sound quality?

Also, I am wondering if there is another solution that would accomplish the above and also allow me to use two headphones, for example, if I have a friend over who wants to sample something with his headphones at the same time.

I would be ok getting a second amplifier for the second pair of headphones, but is there some sort of basic splitter that would take RCA in and then split to say three 1/8" jacks out? Basically I'm having trouble finding this, not sure what it would be called

After doing some research for a DAC, I found the Beresford TC-7510, which conveniently has all of the outputs I mentioned above, so I think that will be my solution.

Anyone able to comment on how much of an upgrade this is over the DAC of the M-Audio 2496?
