    Evening Guys.......

    Just wanted to ask which would be the prefered method of connection for stereo sound (Music CD's).......??

    Arcam FMJ DV27a > TAG AV32R-bp192 > Parasound 1205a > ProAc Response 1.5D

    Do I go digital (Nordost Silver Shadow Digital Cable) letting the TAG DAC's do the work...............

    Or Analogue (Nordost Red Dawn Stereo Pair) using the 5.1 Bypass I have on the TAG leaving the Arcam to sort it all out.

    Just in the process of upgrading the cables so thought I'd ask the experts........ :smashin:

    Cheers.

    Seems to me it comes down to which has the better DACs, Arcam or Tag.

    Your best bet is to borrow the cables you'd need, listen both ways, and let your ears decide.

    I can't speak for the Tag, but you won't be disappointed by the Arcam audio.

    Have to admit.. I just use the digital out from my arcam into my Tag.. as the Tag will digitize the analog inputs from the arcam.. I reckon why have the extra conversion.

    I would agree with what Dean has said, the ears should decide

    My vote goes to using the Analogue outputs - adds loads of depth on my Amp (Pioneer VSA AX10i)
