Who's the DAC Daddy? DVD player or Home Cinema Amp?
I have a Denon AVR2106 home cinema amp and am about to buy the Denon DVD1930 DVD player to go with it. I was always planning to connect them using a coaxial digital lead, but then I thought to myself; Are the DAC's in the DVD Player better than the ones in my amp? The DVD player is stated as having 24 Bit/192kHz Burr-Brown Audio DAC. Would it therefore be better to use the analogue outputs from the DVD player and connect them to the individual channel inputs in the amp? Would I really only benefit when playing CD's or would this apply to DVD's too? I'd like to hear any thoughts before shelling out for some quality patch cables!
