Please, can anyone share their experience with 2i2 as DAC?
It really isnt meant to be used as a DAC at all and you can get far better ones for about the same price. This is optimized for a recording interface, the monitor outputs are just cheap additions to let you hear the stuff being recorded.
Even though this is clearly marketed as a device for recording audio, the Scarlett audio interfaces are absolutely appropriate to use as DACs. Granted, if you only need a dac you could save a lot of money and grab something much cheaper, but if you're considering recording or even using a nice xlr mic later on, there is nothing wrong with using this only as a dac in the meantime. Also, I doubt you would be able to tell the difference between the DAC chip in this unit and just about any other DAC out there at this price (or even at a more expensive price).
