Dear members,

I need your valuable inputs on using Topping E30 as a DAC with my PC (source) and Kanto YU6 which is a powered speakers for my PC. How should I connect my PC with the DAC and YU6 as a speaker to get the best output while listening to music. I have also attached the images of the DAC and Speaker both..

Please share your inputs ?

Regards
Rajiv

Does the kanto have inbuilt dac as i see optical ports on the speaker ?

If yes you need to compare what sounds better doing duty as dac, the speaker or the topping.

On paper it would be obviously the topping but then without listening you can't discount the speaker.

But the major issue would be the pc as their optical out is not so good as it was never made to satisfy audiophiles and the. Kanto only has optical inputs .

So either you Do a comparison

Or.

Connecte pc to dac via usb and obviously dac to speaker by analogue connection

Then next you will have to decide from where do you control volume , dac or speaker of both of them volume control.
If only one of them has then choice is clear
