View Full Version : Laptop->Tube preamp-> adcom gfa-545

So I decided I want to build a Foreplay tube preamp and saddle it up with my adcom 545 II. Ok sounds good right? Well I hope.
My problem is with my source. I will be using my laptop and I feel like the headphone jack is not the best way to output.
So here are the options as I see ‘em:
M-AUDIO Audiophile USB; this feels like I would have two preamps.
M-AUDIO Transit + a DAC; this feels like I will have too much equipment for college, I already feel like that but I love great sound.

So what do you think?

Thanks for reading.
