I had a quick question as I am somewhat new to DACs, pre amps, and other bits of audio gear past a receiver and bookshelf’s.
I have a compact desk set up with Kanto Yu2’s running off of their built in USB DAC. I have invested in a Hifiman HE4xx headset and a little bear p2 head phone amp. I am also currently looking into a budget DAC for this setup, possibly a Fiio k3. No audiophile but want a nice little setup.
So my question would be, can I run this as
PC—>DAC—>pre amp—> powered speakers? Will it sound horrible/cause issues running this through a headphone DAC and a “fake” tube headphone amp via the aux on my Yu 2’s?
I would leave it set up like this and then just swap the headset into the headphone amp when I wanted to switch. I realize there may be little to no audio benefits here but as long as it doesn’t detract from sound I already get out of them I would probably go this route.
Thanks in advance.
