I'm looking for a dual output DAC for around £300 but haven't been able to find any.

I have a millett minimax headphone amp and a cambridge audio 640a stereo amp for my speakers and would like a way to switch between them easily with a DAC inline.

Is there are any other way of a achieving this? or is the only way with a dual output DAC?

I have a Cambridge audio DacMagic that fits into your budget.
It has XLR outputs(balanced/ unbalanced) and RCA(unbalanced). I'm very happy with mine. Should blend with your existing amp nicely

If you don't have anything that can accept XLR, you can use an XLR -> Phono adapter


And it does go great with the MiniMax


EDIT:

Just adding this quote from the DAC Magic manual;

Quote:
It is possible to use the RCA phono connections and the XLR balanced connections at the same time, e.g. for connecting to different amplifiers or multi-room operations.

I just wanted to add that when I got my Auditor the manual said they do not advise the use of adapters but a XLR to RCA cable to be used instead. I know Cardas makes high quality adapters but they are expensive and I still think such cable as I mentioned above is the better solution.
