Looking for a solid state headphone amp with 2 or more RCA inputs and an RCA output.

Does anyone know of a solid state headphone amp with 2 RCA inputs and a passthrough RCA output? The Xduoo TA-20 is nearly what I want, but I was looking for something solid state. No DAC needed.

Or you can use XLR-to-RCA and get something like the Topping A90? It has RCA and XLR input, and there is an input switch at the front, so you can conveniently switch between the 2 sources.

Hadn't thought of that. Any downsides to using unbalanced to balanced adapters?

Unbalanced to balanced should be fine, just that it will convert your signal to unbalanced, so you're not getting the benefits of balanced. Since your DACs are not outputting balanced signal in the first place, you're not losing anything. Just be careful if you're trying the reverse (XLR out to RCA in), since it's gonna mess with the RCA's ground. But I dont think you're going to do that anyway since the Topping A90 and most amps will have RCA out anyway and you can just use regular RCA cables.

Depending on your specific needs, Schiit should have you covered for this:
