I am still looking around for a tube amp or DAC. I found some hype revolving around Musical Paradise and I see that it can double up for both headphones and my stereo setup.
Anyone have experience with this or a similar line?
I was originally looking at Xduoo for headphone amps or dacs, but this seems to be a 2 for 1 for me, although it’s a DAC only.
Thoughts? Good value?
I’ve heard the original mp-d1 and it’s pretty great. The mk3 looks pretty dang nice for the price, but it would be more then the xduoo, but it looks pretty great. You could possibly get a jds labs atom as a headphone amp with it
M0N to the rescue, thanks for the feedback.
I have a Grace SDAC/Amp, although I don’t know how to do a passthrough. Does it depend on the order that I plug it in? Source --> DAC turned off --> Amp turned on?
Also, how does one plug in this DAC to an AVR? Is it possible?
So you shouldn’t have any issues with the avr dac interfering with this dac, but the headphone out on your receiver is most likely subpar at best, because most manufactures don’t really put much care into them
So after some reading, I ended up buying the Musical Paradise MP-301 Mk3 (2018 edition). There seems to be quite a bit of positive buzz with it and I can use it with both stereo and headphones.
I hope it does me well, /crosses fingers.
