I’m going to receive a BTA30 soon. Going to be used exclusively as an LDAC transmitter. It will be run in conjunction with my existing SMSL M100/Atom . I want to be able to seamlessly switch between my set of wired and wireless headphones to listen to the same source.
The BTA30 has a regular DAC mode, but it cannot transmit BT and function as a wired DAC at the same time. There is a mode switch that needs to be flipped. I’m gonna chuck it on a high shelf in BT mode and forget about it.
Anyone know the best way to go about this? Thanks.
The signal will be clean if it’s a high enough quality splitter. You should be able to have a good one made for less that $500 or so if it’s only 2 channel split at one of the custom wire makers that do high end fiber. We use them at work once in a while. You can find cheaper but it won’t be audio quality, if that doesn’t make a difference to you even better.
The only difference will be in how hi-res a signal the optical channels will pass through, they tend to offer a bit less than USB and SPIDIF but i think it depends on the DAC.
Personally, i’ve never been able to hear much difference at those levels anyway. Sorry i coudn’t be more help.
Here is a link to one of the Specialty wire making companies we’ve used at work. Good luck
