I have optical digital output disc player and planning to change my worldspace receiver and to get one with digital out.
Dont want a AVR which will have a lot of inputs and outputs, even radio...etc. This will increase the cost. I want to look for a very good speaker system as well. So thought a good amp will do now. But Marantz amps dont have digital inputs I think (form their site).
u mean the amplifiers(not AVRs) from Onkyo and sharp are not hi-fi amps? Their digital inputs wont be useful?No hi-fi amp has a digital input. Only AV amps have them. But those digital signals are different. They are DD, DTS, etc (5.1) audio multiplexed into one digital signal. This digital signal is different from a 2-channel digital signal.
hmmmm.. since DAC will eatup my budget,
now I plan to buy a very good amp + speakers...
So I can save now and will buy DAC later.
