Already been down audio research path..
Don't really need to go back there .
Hi guys after successfully reaching a conclusion with streamers etc from some amazing sna members. I've always wanted help in understanding why i need a pre amp (seperate) to what i already own.
I do have a bit of knowledge in audio, BUT you can never learn enough.
I understand the function of a pre and what it's primary use is intended for, i have a streamer, straight to an auralic vega (dac/digital pre)
Xlr straight to the amps. Now i have heard talk of my dac not really being a good pre amp, primarily because its shitty digital volume control.
What i would love answered by the pro's is, what pre amp should i be using? What benefit if at all will i hear going from a non dedicated digital pre to an analog one?
Is it too harsh going from your dac straight to the monoblocks?
My setup includes the aries streamer straight to vega then directly to the monoblocks. They do make a pre amp but they are too hard to find.
I will have to go with a different brand.
*disclosure* i will not be needing analog inputs or will i need phono etc. Hence me thinking a seperate pre may seem redundant.
Thanks if i get answers.
