Lo-Fi USB DAC?


Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

I own a Bryston BDA-1 on my main rig... love it

I own a MF V-DAC on my headphone rig... love it

I own a Pimoroni pHat DAC running off a Raspberry Pi ZERO my $60 home made Bathroom system... freakin' love it!

 

Wait, the Pi was $5 and the pHat DAC was $15!

 

The sound is surprisingly good... and that got me thinking...

 

With the new iPhone 7 ditching the headphone jack, I began looking at Lightning to DAC solutions..

 

Sure get the USB 3 Camera adapter and an Audioquest Dragonfly and you are off to the races...

um, The Dragonfly is $100!

 

Is there no other alternative?

That unit that you are talking about would supply an ANALOG out put!

 

I'm looking the DIGITAL OUT from the phone and have something aka a DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) that I can power both my phone and the DAC at the same time...

 

The DragonFly is a good solution, but expensive... the question again is for a Lo-Fi option to replace the DragonFly!

 

I hope this clarifies the issue! :)

 

Thank you!

I believe he suggested the adapter because you complained Iphone 7 ditched the headphone jack. If you are looking for a DAC that has nothing to do with the headphone jack.
