Comparing Twin Wolfson's in CA SM6 via SPDIF or CD's own output to amp
Hi, I don't know if this is clever or barmy!
It occurred to me that the stream magic 6 has a co-ax SPDIF input, therefore utilising twin Wolfson DACs at output.
So, i know i can put the CD20R signal from SPDIF to SPDIF and use the stream magic to the amp, but would it be better to keep the CD20R direct as a source, would the CD20R DAC be better "outputting" direct to the amp than the Wolfson's?
I'm asking because I don't know if my interconnects are high quality enough to get the benefit and am prepared to buy a better cable but only need 1 of them if the Wolfson DACs would be a better performer.
Confused, so am I!
