DAC/ Bluetooth


#1

I have what may be a bit of a unique question and I can’t find the answer anywhere else so hoping someone with a better understanding than me can help answer it… I am using the Sprout’s pre amp to a Peachtree Decco65 via the “analogue out” connection. I am also using the Sprout’s Bluetooth receiver. My question is, what are the effects of using two DAC’s in tandem? as the Decco65 also has a DAC? It sounds good but wondering if choosing one or the other would be a more appropriate way to use the DAC. Thank you in advance for any help with this.

In your setup only the Sprout’s DAC section is being used. It’s converting the digital files (via Bluetooth or whatever) to analog and sending it to the Peachtree, which is just functioning as an amp. The Peachtree’s DAC section is just sitting there and is not processing the signal.
