HD Mediaplayer as transport + up to £ 600 DAC
To me personally the best set-up is a multifunctional mediaplayer + DAC. My aim is to control both video and audio with one remote control with navigation on TV screan.
Some say that HD players are not ok for Hi-Fi because of jitter (impulse power supply, bad spdif out, etc, etc). But I see there are a lot of DACs now which kill jitter. Those who are against this type of set-up anyway insist that the weakest component is a limit of the set-up.
I am looking at Rega DAC or M-DAC. But I am affraid I am already convinced by different forums that these DACs would play good only with CD players and special Hi-Fi transports (like Olive or Logitech or CA Stream Magic, etc)
Please help to understand!!!
Note that I am not inclining to use special Hi-Fi streamers. I also do not like the idea to use computer as transport.
Thanks a lot in advance!
