I’m planning on purchasing a speaker amp I’m excited about, but it has only one input. The input is XLR. It’s a Hypex NC252MP amplifier.
Problem I’m faced with at the moment is I would like to use this amplifier in a system that includes both streaming music (via either Raspberry Pi or directly from iPad - haven’t decided yet) and a turntable (Drop + Audio Technica - just pre-ordered it).
Can someone please advise on how I can connect both sources to the amplifier, given its sole XLR input?
Is there a DAC that also can function as a pre-amp that I can purchase and use for this?
Or maybe I need to purchase DAC and pre-amp separately?
Would definitely prefer a DAC that has XLR output.
Will be using mostly a pair of JBL Studio 530 speakers.
Thanks for your time!
