    Not having an optical lead to hand I was wondering if anyone knows the better dac to use out of my (what i believe is) crappy old kenwood cd player or use the one in my home cinema yamaha amp?

    (both models in my sig below)


    Anyone know or am i going to just have to buy a lead and find out?

    Assuming you've got your DVD player connected with an optical or coaxial cable you could just play a CD in that to get an idea of how the DAC in the amp sounds.
