As I’ve mentioned in other threads, I’m in the midst of selling off all my analog guitar stuff to move to a digital rig. As a part of that process, I’m considering upgrading my Focusrite 2i2 audio interface. I’m also interested in getting another desktop DAC/AMP, and I’m wondering if I can kill two birds with one stone.
RME makes a highly regarded audio interface called the Babyface Pro that has great form factor, and at least from the marketing speak seems like it might share components with their ADI-2 DAC. The specs are a little lower, but the Babyface is also 2/3rds the price of the ADI-2.
Most of the reviews I’ve seen on the Babyface Pro are focussed on its features as an audio interface, but I’m wondering if anyone here can comment on its utility as a DAC/AMP combo?
