After reading the thread DAC Info that may be helpful I have been toying with the idea of adding a DAC to my system problem is Im broke, I have noticed a couple of the Arcam DACs (the 50 not the 500 unfortunately) going fairly cheap (dont want to spend more than £50). I would probably get rid of the changer and just have the DVD player in order to free up space (assuming it sounds at least as good as my current set-up), with the aim of upgrading the DVD after Christmas but keeping the DAC if I get one. Does anyone have any experience with these DACs and are they worth paying £50 for over the Yamaha changer fed to the internal DACs in my Marantz and the Arcam does have a re-clocking stage for jitter correction, but is quite old now. I have also found out that the 6.1 input on the Marantz is an analogue bypass so it does not convert from analogue back to digital would this be the best place to feed a DAC? Obviously if I got one I would experiment for myself to see if there is any sound difference but thought I would ask for opinions anyway.
