I know its a dumb question, but I am not sure how to do that. I got an erc-3, and my rig has XDA-2, XPA-2 and USP-1, powering a pair of mirage omd-28's. Not sure to what piece of equipment I plug it in.
Where does the erc-3 fit in ? Any opinion is appreciated.

You have two basic options - try both and see if any of them sound better than the rest. Option one would be L/R analog direct to the USP-1 - option 2 is either coax or optical out (same signal) to the XDA-2. Since the XDA-2 and the ERC-3 have very similar DAC's either one should sound very similar. I find using the internal dac (analog direct to the USP-1) is better since it is the shortest signal path.
