Full Naim system vs DAC/pre into power amp.
I have a Naim Dac, 282, 250.2.
I only use digital from a mac so I'm thinking I could get a simpler system - A DAC with volume control straight into a power amp.
Does anyone have any experience with such DACs (audiolab Mdac, Teddy Dac, Weiss 202 etc) straight into a power amp (eg Naim 250.2, Teddy Monoblocks etc) vs the more conventional Naim set up such as mine?
Is this a crazy move? Is the Naim still the best option? It seems to be a lot of boxes and ££ to play digital only. I did wonder whether the simpler system would also bring benefits due to less being 'in the way' between the source and the speakers.
