Is it possible to use a USB DAC/AMP combo to record with a Mic?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have bought a USB DAC/AMP combo for my PC and I was wondering if I plugged in a Microphone, would it record? The reason I want to do this is that I have a generic BM-700 cheap microphone from Amazon but it sounds very noisy or with very little volume when I plug it into my cheap PC sound card since it requires phantom power and noise is something to expect from a cheap sound card, since the DAC has an AMP I thought it may work... Maybe I'm asking complete nonsense, but just in case it was to be possible.

Microphones need the opposite, an ADC, becase you need to convert analog to digital.

This requires an audio interface, not just a DAC/AMP.

My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project
