Preamp to feed a Yaqin tube power amp.
Hi. Looking for advice. I have this Yaqin EL34 amp that I need to run off a DAC connected to a MacBook Pro. I’m using an original issue Objective O2 DAC to run my headphone amps.
What kind of preamp / DAC-preamp should I use to drive this thing? Know any that include a phone stage? I’m looking in the under $300 range.
