I am interested in adding a separate headphone station into my listening area utilizing a headphone amplifier which will be removed from where the other audio gear is.
My current setup is:
NAS storage with ethernet connection into headless windows server which is connected by USB into Schiit Yggdrasil DAC.
Yggdrasil RCA output to Anthem MRS1120 and RCA pre outs from this to the amp driving the front speakers.
Control is through ipad for Roon.
The headphone amp would have RCA inputs only and I will be using an ethernet connection to access the network. It is too far away to practically use a long headphone cord from the main equipment.
I am not sure if there is a way to still use the Yggdrassil or whether doing this commits me to needing a separate headphone DAC.
I am also not sure how best to get from ethernet to the RCA inputs on the headphone amp.
I was wondering about a NUC with ?Bridge but would need a way to convert to RCA out somewhere.
Any advice would be appreciated
Any advice on how best to proceed or options to consider would be appreciated
