    Hey guys,
    Looking to get a decent USB dac and headphone amp for my mac mini, I've been looking at seeing if I can get a used xonar essence or something similar but also wondering if there is any other suggestions, will a USB dac even work with mac mini?
    My headphones are DT770 Pro 80ohm
    Cheers

    Could look at something like a Schiit Fulla 2 perhaps. Pretty decent dac/amp combo for the price and should work on a mac mini just fine I would have thought.

    Would that be the only use for it?
    Like don't have any consoles which might need somethig for headphone use...
