I'm running an SDA setup with a Squeezebox Touch running coax into a Wyred4Sound DAC2. Incredible sound, great with 24-bit hi-res stuff. But as much as I consider getting off my fat arse and changing a disc to be utter nonsense, and as much as I loathe being pigeon holed into how I can play the music back, I must say that the wider availability of titles on SACD gives me an itch to get a player.
I'm thinking that although I love the thing, I could sell the DAC2 and have enough funds to purchase a SA8004 and still have a bunch of cash left over to buy some SACD's. I've read that this unit performs really well as a standalone DAC, so I'm thinking I'd feed the Squeezebox into the Marantz instead of the DAC2. One review said something along the lines of buy this unit for the DAC, get an SACD player for free.
Just wondering if anyone's ever tried using this player as a DAC?
