I am interest in your feedback on 3 questions. I use my PS3 as my CDP connected to my AVR. I know a better CDP is probably best solution but that is not going to happen right now. I would run optical from PS3 to DAC and analog from DAC to AVR.
Digital SQ currently is good, I think Vinyl is better in my system and looking for digital SQ improvement.
I have read some of the threads on DACs here which most of the technical terms escape me and the general thoughts are you need to spend greater than $1000 for a good DAC.
According to Denon this is the technical infor on my AVRs DAC
24-bit/192-kHz DACs – Burr-Brown PCM-1791 DSD-1608
24-bit/192-kHz DACs - Analog Devices
Analog-to-Digital Conversion - Bit Depth/Sampling Rate 24-bit/96kHz Burr-Brown PCM-1803
Would a DAC like the ones listed below make a nice improvement is SQ for the money?
Opinions of these DACs?
For the same $$ ballpark as the DACs below is there another I should consider?
Musical Fidelity x-dac v3
Cambridge Audio DACMagic
Thanks for your input/feedback
