Streaming via squeezebox not as good as via bluray why?
I was lucky enough to get the amazon lightning deal for the Logitech squeezebox touch. At £140 I bought it blind and am seriously impressed how good it sounds for the money. Currently listening to 24/96 FLAC of Dawn Langstroth - Highwire and it blows away CD quality. The bit that confuses me is that using the same song with my Oppo 93 feeding into a Dacmagic2 still provides extra clarity to the vocals, the cymbals sound more realistic, better focus of the soundstage and a more defined bass. Even feeding the squeezebox into the DAC via coax still does not match the presentation of the Oppo. I always thought the DAC would have the greater influence on the sound rather than the device that is only 'reading' the file.
Any ideas why this is so?
