Wireless dac headphone amp?

Does this exist, I want a transmitter with usb/toslink digital inputs to send audio wirelessly to a dac headphone amp receiver that also has usb input.

RE: Wireless dac headphone amp?

I have an Arcam rBlink recieving Bluetooth audio from phones (although my Samsung phone supports better quality audio than my iPhone due to a lack of Apt-x support). Although this unit is a DAC itself I bypass that and get the rBlink to send digital audio to an Audiolab M-DAC (via coax). The M-DAC also has another coax, USB and two optical inputs which I use for direct connection to a computer and games consols. In my case the M-DAC then acts as a pre-amp, connected to a power amp, but it will just as easily connect to an integrated amp or headphones (pluged straight into the M-DAC).

It sounds like what you are asking for is very different to that, but the Arcam rBlink could be of use to you.

What about an Audioengine D2? In theory, you could output to the headphone amp from this? £500 GBP though.  Smile

Nice recommend OBS, that seems to suit the OPs request better than the rBlink. I just remembered that the Cambridge Audio DACMagic Plus (£350) has an option of a wireless reciever upgrade (BT100) for £70.
