Hi, I am new into this, I have dac
Cos H1 already, if I were to purchase this, I purchase as is or I should pick coaxial or optical option?
Hello. Following official site, your DAC has only RCA-LINE output.
So coaxial or optical option does not connect with your DAC.
If you have a dac you like then you don't need that add on dac for this amp. Buy as is. Its just an optional built in dac with one input type.
So because my dac is Cos H1, I can just buy this v280 as is, thanks.
So then what is the additional coaxial and optical input here means to a headphone system, , if I may ask.
Fmm... I think, it may be for the people who want to connect non-PC digital outputs to HPA, for example, TV's optical outputs or others.
They're just dac cards, it's meant to turn this amp into a dac/amp combo. There's only enough room for one input type, so they let you pick do you want the dac with the optical input or the dac with the coax input. When you buy from violectric directly they also have a USB input dac card option. They aren't the greatest dacs, and are outdated now compared to what you can buy for the same price as a stand alone dac. So if you already own a good stand alone dac, then you don't need to put another one into this amp and have two dacs for no reason.
