RME ADI-2 DAC

more_vert
I'm planning to get this as my temporary desktop setup, and later on add a balanced amp. Thoughts? Other recommendations? I'm looking to run headphones and IEMs, currently the Argons Mk3 and CA Solaris.

I'm also considering one for a DAC/preamp/headphone amp. Specs are incredible, reviews have been VERY positive. Sounds cleaner, more articulate and more spacious than the Schitt stuff I have heard, for example.

The ADI-2 is amazing, and honestly it has plenty of power for 95% of the headphones on the market. That being said, unless you want all of the filters and other options it offers, it's way more costly than what you need to spend for a quality DAC.

A price comparable combined unit, on the R-2R side for consideration, is the Audio-gd R-28 : http://www.audio-gd.com/R2R/R282019/R282019EN.htm
