I’m looking for recommendations for a desktop setup to power headphones and use as a DAC/preamp for powered monitors, and I’d like to be able to control the volume of both from one knob.
I’ve searched for some solutions on my own and found the ifi Zen DAC V2 and the JDS Labs Element II which seem to do what I’m looking for. These are both all-in-one units, but I wouldn’t be opposed to multiple units as long as all the volume control is still on the same knob. My budget is $400 USD, but I’d be willing to push it a bit if there’s a notable benefit to be had.
Thanks in advance!
