Does that output impedance seem pretty high for the dac?

No good for a passive with up to 2kohm dac output impedance and his power amp at 27kohm input impedance.
He needs an active preamp best would be a Schiit Freya with "passive" "tube" or "solid state" selectable outputs. Ideal because all with low gain.
And if the OP ever changes the dac to one with a nice low output impedance the the Schiit passive mode could be used to great effect.
Yes, the output impedance for the DAC seemed high to me. This is the information I received from Vlad at Audio Mirror. Also the output impedance for the SYS seems high. Is this so?
As to input impedances, am I right that the input impedance 'seen' by the DAC would be the sum of the input impedances for the DAC and AMP?
Also the BEL input impedance its 27K ohms not 22K ohms. Did not catch this in my edit. Thanks George.
I am enjoying the DAC. My Jolida pre has an input impedance of 100Kohms so the DACs output is no problem. I was enjoying the pre until the RFI/hum problem. Will be calling Jolida to to see what can be done. I replaced the Jolida with the preamp section of my NAD C356BEE. This combination provides silent background.
