After putting in over 65 hours this week I finally managed to have the motivation to hook up my new to me Marantz DV9500 SACD player tonight with it's 5.1 out. Just to get it up and running after I got it last weekend I had it hooked up to the aux input on the front of my Marantz 7002 but I really wanted to utilize the 5.1 on Dark Side of the Moon.
After running the 3 pairs of RCA's around my stand and changing the internal settings of the 9500 I was up and running. I finally realize what I have been missing in my system. A good source truly makes all the difference in the world. Sure, the squeezebox is great, but I only use it for spotify and pandora which isn't the best quality on it's own. Now, everything is singing as it should. I have a copy of Sea Change on special order that should come this week and with the christmas money hopefully rolling in, I can't wait to get a few more discs to spin.
