I have a DAC DAC 1HS and the plan is to run balanced cables to the *Nobsound passive preamp where I can attenuate the volume and switch between balanced and single ended outputs. The balanced outputs will feed the Maraschino’s and the single ended outputs will feed a *headphone amplifier.
*Unfortunately neither the passive preamp or the headphone amplifier are Cherry products.
However the preamp only contains a switch and an Alps attenuator - no caps, no transformer.
Once I get this set up, the preamp will switch the balanced input of the DAC to single ended output for the headphone amp without adapters. Because the preamp is essentially nothing more than a switch and a volume pot, will that interfere with the desired DC coupling... or not?
I think the answer to this question is no, but I would rather be certain.
