DAP to amp connect?


Novice Member
Help! Currently own an Astell & Kern AK70 which is rammed with a zillion flac albums. I’m not using it as a portable device but rather have it connected to my Rotel RA-11 amp which powers a pair of Q Acoustics Concept 20’s. I’ve connected via the 2.5mm balanced headphone socket on the Ak70 to a 2 phono analogue connect on the rear of the amp and it seems to play ok. My question is is this the best method of connecting to my existing hi-fi to ensure the best possible sound or am I missing a trick? Is this making the most of the hi-res audio (I was expecting at least cd quality, not sure if I’m getting that)? Thanks

It only requires a cheap cable for you to try the other connections and decide which you like best.
