I'm new with amp/dac's, and I'm not sure of the best ways to hook up my sources. I just pulled the trigger on the "Massdrop Liquid Carbon X + SDAC DAC/Amp" and I'm planning of driving them with all my headphones. My sources are as follows:
Apple TV (4th Gen)- Does not have an optical out; only HDMI.
MacBook Pro (Only has USB-C)- Also have a USB-C to USB dongle.
iPhone XS Max (I own a Lightning to USB/Lightning adapter)
Xbox One X- This one seems straightforward since it offers a lot of options.
Pioneer Elite Receiver-Most of my sources run off it. For simplicity reasons, is it possible to keep my sources connected to my receiver, and just passing sound to my LCX? I believe it only has one HDMI-passthrough, if that matters.
I'm very excited to test out the LCX. I just need help on what cables I should buy and, which adapters are needed to hook up my sources. Over at Head-fi, my question received very complex solutions.
