If I join this Drop. I will be getting this to sit on the side table by my spot on the couch in our Den/Family Room. I will use an iPhone or iPad as the source to stream audio from Spotify more than likely. I will need to get a DAC that I can stack this on top of and that will look "nice" (to keep my wife happy). Any suggestions for DAC of similar size and appearance that will play nice with an iPhone?
Unfortunately, the DV 336 is quite large, and there aren't alot of DACs in it's form factor. There are a lot of small form factor DAC only options that would possibly keep the Missus happy (I also have a wife to keep happy so I know the struggle).
The meridian Explorer 2 is a pretty good option, as well as the Micca OriGen. I use the Grace Design SDAC from Massdrop, but it is not currently available. The DacMagic 100 is also a nice option.
This is my exact setup. I feed the DarkVoice from a Chromecast Audio. It works and sounds great. It’s low profile and the wife doesn’t mind it being in the living room. I primarily use Google Play Music and Plex (FLAC) to play music. I have used my Aune X1S, Topping NX4 and AudioEngine D1 as DACs for the DarkVoice and found none offered any noticeable improvement, to me, in sound quality over connecting the Chromecast Audio directly to the DarkVoice.
Thanks. I'll consider this.
Literally exact same setup. Loving it!
