Hi sigfrido,

If you do not have active speakers, you absolutely need an amplifier before directly connecting the DAC.

The amplifier needs to provide the correct wattage for your speakers. You can find out what the speakers need on the manufacturer’s page or on the speakers themselves.

You need to connect the RCA outputs of the DAC to to the RCA inputs of either your Amplifier or your active speakers for the DAC to correctly send the analogue HiFi audio signal that is then amplified, either by a dedicated amplifier or by active speakers‘ built-in amplifier.
