I'm thinking that something like this should be better than daisy chained "Y" adapters.
That might be an option, however it's specs are debatable...
Input Impedance 10 K Ohm
Max Input Level +12 dBV
Output Impedance 470 Ohm
Max Output Level +12 dB
Max Gain 20 dB
S/N Ratio >90db
Cross Talk -70 dB (stereo)
Frequency Response DC - 60 kHz, +/- 1 dB
Power 15 VDC
6.5” (17.15 cm) x 3.5” (8.89 cm) x 1.5” (3.81 cm)
I kinda like the idea of just using the hard adapters as a passive device, no wires, and maybe less likely to alter the signal?
I just emailed the DAC manufacturer to see if splitting the output signal four ways would adversely affect the signal as well.
DirectStream’s output impedance is a fairly low 296 ohms and would have no trouble driving two amps who’s input impedance’s greater than 33kohm each.
Using this type to split the signal from the PS Audio.
