I'm looking for a DAC/headphone amp that will allow me to switch between my speakers and headphones. Anyone know what happens to the RCA output when you plug a pair of headphones in? I'm hoping the RCA mutes with headphones in but I can't find an answer to this anywhere.

Awesome, thanks for the reply. Looks like I'll need to keep looking for one that can switch. My speakers are powered so just being a DAC isn't an issue.

headphones and powered speakers connected to this this DAC/AMP can play at the same time. So there is no switch that engages the RCA line output as it is always on when the DAC/AMP is on. Volume knob controls the headphone output only.
Why would anyone order it here, when you can for same or even less money get it on aliexpress?
Good combo, but I think everyone is just going to pay $5 more on Amazon to have it in 2 days rather than a month.
Which is better for a DT 990 600. This or the O2 + ODAC? Someone with experience

This is more powerful than the 02
Hi everyone,
I need a help ! As soon as I plugged my headphone to the x6, the sound was amazing. But in time, I realized my ear wants something and missing from my old setup, and I plugged my headphones (ath AD900x) to my Gigabyte K1 motherboards soundcard back again to detect what is missing from my old setup.

With x6, soundstage significantly narrowed down, although the sound is beafy, in some tracks and movies the lower-back ground-environmental sounds, that needed treble to come up, are subdued. It is bothering me. Is it my unit (maybe defective) or is it the normal sound character of x6 ?

EDM, Hip-hop tracks are way better than my on-board audio (Realtek alc1150 gigabyte k3 z170) . The sound is more like melow, lush, vinly-like, warm, thick and not harsh, more bassy also. The brightnes, edgy sound of my alc 1150 is completely gone. I mean I like it, but the texture of sound, the details are gone. So, what I'm hearing is right ? or my unit is defective.

It is so strange, for example; a man talking=loud, thick, bassy ---- a gun blasting=nothing . Channels may be defective ? It's kind of wrong. some frequencies sound way louder than others. In fact low ends and lower mids are way dominant than upper mids and trebles.

By the way the diffrences are day and night. I'm not talking about small characteristics. My other amp/dacs weren't that diffrent than each other including my on-board audio. (e10k, k3, smsl) . I'm confused.

What are your experiences in this aspect ?

somebody help
If 100% volume is low, then I guess you need an amp.

The massdrop price is pretty expensive compared to aliexpress prices today, though.
