Wondering if I can connect an MS200 to an Explorer2. SPDIF to miniUSB?

If I can, great, what is the cable I need?

If not, a similar priced/quality DAC recommendation would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Andrew

Hi,

It doesn't really make sense attempting to connect a MS200 to an Explorer2, to help us put this in context what's your goal here?

Maybe he's not aware that the MS200 has an analogue output? (And of course, SPDIF into USB doesn't go...)

Apologies for the late reply, I was looking to stream to a headphone amp with RCA inputs. I Didn’t realise the MS200 had analogue out.
So a 3.5mm to RCA L&R cable should do the trick.
Thanks for your help.
