I guess you can stack all three right? DAC outputs to the headphone amp, then headphone amp acts like a preamp to the stereo amp. I'm exploring a stack that I can use for both headphones and desktop monitors.
The A30 does not have pre-outs, just a loop out. Note that desktop monitors will most likely be powered. You can buy the P3 to use as a preamp. Or by a schiit modi/magni stack and use the magni to control volume (it has pre-outs, but no loop out). Or buy a D30/A30 stack and a schiit sys to use as a preamp. Or whatever seems most sensible to you.
If you're looking at passive monitors, then the P3 will work fine with the other two, since it has its own volume knob. It looks a little different from the others for some reason, though, so aesthetically may look a bit odd as a stack.
