Default Plug in DAC into main in or to cd inputs of an integrated amplifier

Thinking of a basic dac with Bluetooth. I looked at a few.

Currently top contender is creative x7
260$ on Amazon

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00Q3...33TR5AUQ&psc=1

Has burr brown dac

There is also this one

Audioengine B1 Bluetooth Music Receiver (2019 Version) B1 B&H


And volume control. So it's sort of a pre amp already

I have few nakamichi ta and Sr series. Some come with pre-out and main in jacks.

What's the issue if you have 2 pre amps on signal path

Say
1) creative x7 -->cd inputs of nakamichi--> speakers

2) creative x7 --> main in of nakamichi--> speakers

Any issues or adverse affects of either pathway

If you have other dac recommendation please let me know
Need USB connection to Android, Mac, pc and bluetooth

Having read reviews seems like sound blaster is a bad unit. Picks up noise everywhere. And etc

I usually recommend the Topping D50S to friends that are looking to modernize their setups a bit.

Thanks you. This maybe exactly what I need. How does it compare to dac 2 version of itself. Same price. But often I noticed many brands make name for themselves and then start cutting corners. Or actually make improvements
I'll be looking at specs now. But better to have extra help) I appreciate

My bad, itís the Topping DX3 Pro that I meant to recommend.
And there is a version 2 now as well, should probably do some research too, but itís right in your price range, available through amazon.

Are there reasons for dx3 over d50s?
I see dx3 is based on akm dad
D50s on sabre.
I don't really need headphone amp

The akm dac has a more favorable response than the ess, at the expense of a slight increase in noise. The dx3 will perform as a preamp, and is what I would likely purchase if I wasnít interested in diy.
