I have been reading this board for ages, although I don’t recall ever posting before. I have always felt that I learn more by listening than by speaking, and boards are no different.
I believe this is a straight forward question, although the related topics provided some guidance, I would appreciate some clarification.
For context, my current system is a Rega P5/Dynavector 10x5/Stageline N/Nait 5/Rega R1. It’s been lovely. I’ve tiptoed into streaming using the Lightning/USB input into a Schiit Bifrost UBER (Chord RCA/DIN). Since then, my vinyl collection has stalled in favor of Qobuz and I believe this shall be the way forward, most likely with with something in the Uniti line, equally likely a ND5.
So. I have a SNAIC 5 connecting the Stageline N to the Nait 5. I have recently acquired a secondhand Flatcap 2. I expect these two to be paired for eternity hereafter.
I understand that I can simply re-purpose the SNAIC 5 previously connecting the Stageline to the Nait 5 and add the requisite SNAIC 4, and be on my way - losing vinyl playback.
If I wish to retain analogue playback, can I simply acquire another SNAIC 5 and reconnect to the powered connection on the Nait 5? The schematic I have reviewed suggests that a SNAIC 4/5 is required as well. Are there multiple connection options?
I appreciate your endurance of this remedial question.
