Speakers such as the Audioengine HD6 and Klipsch The Sixes have in built DAC for HiRes music support and Bluetooth 5.0 for HQ streaming. Anymore speakers as such under $1000? Specifically looking for a built in DAC better than the Topping D50s! Thank You 🙏🏼☺️
Hello. I'm selling my XEO 3s (white, up on eBay now!) and getting the XEO 20s. I think! I started down the path of exploring a direct USB connection to the XEOs, but not necessarily wanting or needing the Dynaudio Connect box. Then I came across a review of the KEF LS50 wireless, where an external DAC was used, I think via the analog outs. It sounded like using an analog out would be odd with the XEOs, as a digital signal stays digital until the driver, and an analog signal is converted to digital by the XEOs. So with analog DAC out, the digital signal would be converted 2x, if I understand correctly. Any thoughts on the following setups— With DAC 1. iPhone + ALAC files > Apple CCK > USB cable > External DAC > Toslink from DAC to XEO 20 master. 2. iPhone + ALAC files > Apple CCK > USB cable > External DAC > Analog out from DAC to XEO 20 master. No DAC 3. iPhone + ALAC files > Apple Lightning Dock > Toslink to XEO 20s (I think Apple's Lightning Dock bypasses the iPhone DAC when using Toslink and sends a pure signal.) On my setup, I'm thinking of using my iPhone 7 (gasp!) for the source. Don't really want to deal with a headless Mac mini (+ controlling Apple Music would be a pain). I was looking at the Aries Mini, as you can add storage, but it's sold out. Bluesound Node 2 doesn't work with Apple Music. Sources are ALAC and Apple Music for the mist part. Maybe Tidal at some point. So as much as it may offend, I like the idea of a iPhone or iPad as source. Thoughts?
First post here but long time forum reader. Looking for some advise on improving my current setup ie : Macbook Pro / TIDAL --> stock Chord USB --> Chord Hugo --> 1. Dynaudio Focus 110A (from Hugo RCA out) 2. Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 + PSB subwoofer 100 (from Hugo 3.5mm headphone out) 3. Headphone : HD800S on CustomCans cable. 4. IEM : AKG3001 I'd like to use the Chord Hugo as a dedicated DAC only and need advise on : Dedicated hp amp (with RCA line outs for the above speakers) USB cables? RCA cables? from the Hugo to the hp amp and from HP amp to Dynaudio Any other suggestion on improving the above? Budget around $1000 Or leave it as it is? Thanks
