Topic: ADI-2 FS deal
Hi everyone, I have the ADI-2 DAC connected to the Focal SM-9, purchased on the advice of this forum smile Very happy with the decision I made!
I have an opportunity to purchase the ADI-2 FS (https://www.rme-audio.de/ADI-2-FS.html). My main interest for this is in a separate system as a headphone amplifier. I know this is an audio interface and basically (probably) overkill, but I like to buy gear which allows me the flexibility to re-use in future setups.
The idea is: Oppo Sonica DAC (XLR pre-out) -> ADI-2 FS (XLR in) -> headphones (front port)
1. Is the headphone amplifier section the same as/ at least as good as the ADI-2 DAC section?
2. Any issues with using the analog XLR inputs to send a signal from a streamer/DAC? Just that - in hi-fi - used to seeing RCA out from DAC to pre-amp and so forth.
Thank you all for your time
