Sorry if this has been answered already -- just ordered this yesterday and shipped today!
I'm wondering how to integrate this into my system. Currently going mac -> topping d50 dac -> little dot mkiii -> hd6xx
With the ESP/95X and the included energizer, do I just connect the d50 directly to the energizer? no need for the little dot mkiii? or do I include that in the chain?
I have another setup which is mac -> ifi idsd nano -> schitt asgard 2 -> hifiman 400i
Any thoughts vs which dac might sound better with the 95X? And same question regarding headphone amp (little dot mkiii and/or schitt asgard2) - needed with the 95x or not?
If you scroll through the pictures, there a diagram to help you out.
But looking at the image, my guess is that you can either go from
pc/ dap - 3.5mm cable > energizer -> headphones
pc/ dap - usb/ coax > dac - rca cable > energizer -> headphones.
You could probably connect the amp (dac - rca > amp - rca > energizer) if you wanted a bit of coloration from the tubes, but I don't know how well that would work or if that's advised.
Thanks for the reply! That’s what I was thinking that the energizer replaces the headphone amp, so the rest of the chain remains the same.
