Buy a DAC or CD6004? Confused.
Hi Guys, could someone please shed a little light on this whole DAC malarky. My situation is i've been using my Sony BDP for playing CD's but i had the intention to add the much reviewed Marantz CD6004. BUT, i've read this may not be the best way to go? Would a dedicated DAC used with my current Sony BDP out perform the CD6004 considering my £300-£400 budget?
To confuse me further, i have an Apple TV. I have read that an external DAC coupled to my Apple TV with iTunes downloads will also produce extremely good audio? This boggles me as i thought MP3's were bad when it comes to high quality audio?
Advice much appreciated.
