how do you connect the desktop version and the dac together?
The ODAC outputs both 3.5mm and RCA so a mini to RCA cable or RCA to RCA cable. You could also have one output to speakers and one to the headphone amp but the switch Slander linked to may be a cleaner implementation.
It doesn't look like the ODAC is going to drop so I was wondering if it would be possible to connect my Fiio E17 to the amp. The Fiio E17 does come with a 3.5mm to RCA adapter but it only has one connection. Is that ok or do I need something else.
I would be using it in the meantime.
I use a Fiio E17 as a source with the desktop Massdrop O2 right now. To bypass the headphone amp in the E17, I'm using a FiiO L7 Line Out Dock (LOD):
One side of the L7 is a mini usb to AC adapter (an old Blackberry charger) to charge it and the other is a mini to stereo RCA cable to carry the audio signal. There may be a way to max volume or something and not have to use the L7 dock but you would have to refer to the manual.
