I have a Mclntosh C26 preamp was made in 1970 RCA inputs and a Phillips blue ray player with no rca inputs will this DAC work?

Asked by: BeatleD65

Does the headphone amplifier only route through the headphone out? If not is it okay to use this DAC in a stereo speaker set up with an external amp as opposed to using it with just headphones?

Asked by: Rohit12789
Yes. This is an Digital to analog converter and the RCA connections can be used as inputs to your amp. It signal can be monitored through the headphone out.

Would this work if I connected it to my BOSE Sound Dock2?  It only has an Aux In.  So in essence I would be going from my television (optical) to the BOSE speaker (AUX). Thank-you.

Asked by: dirk784
Yes this will work for that application, as long as the output on the TV is set to PCM.

If all my pc has are usb port's, how do I get the audio signal out via the usb input on the dac. Will the pc recognize this device and send signal out ??

Asked by: sloatsburgbob
This DAC can connect to a PC using a standard USB cable and the Audio assigned to that USB port will be converted to analog audio out the RCA jacks of the DAC.
