Need to replace my Denon disc changer.
I have been using this changer(dcm-320) since 1992 and have started hearing static in the right channel.
The dcm-320 does not have digital out.
I’ve been looking at some refurbs on E-bay, the dcm-280 with Burr-Brown 18-Bit D/A Converters (PCM-1716) for $100 shipped, or the dcm-380 with HDCD® Decoding • Burr-Brown 20-Bit D/A Converters (PCM-1748) for around $160 shipped.
Both have digital coax out.
I will be hooking the changer up to a Denon avr-3803, 16 Burr-Brown PCM-1791 24 bit, 192 kHz high resolution DACs on all eight channels, in differential configuration • Real 24 bit, 96 kHz Digital Interface Receiver • 24 bit, 192 kHz A/D conversion (Burr-Brown PCM-1804) on all analog inputs.
Now it looks like to me that the receiver has the better dac’s of the three components, and I should hook the changer up via digital coax right?
If that’s the case should I save the $ and get the cheaper 280 or go with the 380 and the hcdc decoding?
Thanks in advance for your time,
