I’m looking to upgrade my current stack. It’s a Topping D10 and a Monoprice Liquid Spark. I work now and I have my work laptop and home laptop side by side, and I want to easily switch between both while using my DAC and Amp stack.
I’m looking for a way or a new stack that has the following:
- With just a toggle I can switch back and forth the inputs to the DAC (either one of my laptops via USB or another less clunky way)
This “switch” can happen on the DAC input or Amp input, whatever works
- Enough power to drive high end planars like an Arya (I don’t have one yet but I have a Modhouse YUP Argon)
- Low noise floor for sensitive IEMs
I was looking at the Topping E50/L50 stack, Monoprice THX AAA 788 combo, And Schiit Modius & Magnus Stack but the inputs aren’t really suited for what I’m looking for I think.
I’m trying to avoid using optical from either of my laptops because I don’t want to use extra space if I can avoid it. Any help is appreciated
