    I have connected a Dac Magic 2 to my Marantz CD600 OSE and been disappointed with the result. But reading through the forums I think I know why and would just like to ask if I'm on the right track.
    I used coax connections for the cd to the dac and to the av. But from what I read I should use a coax from the cd to the dac and then an anologue lead from the dac to the av. Am I right?
    If so any suggestions as to a good quality anologue lead would be most welcome.

    You are correct about the cabling, digital from CD to DAC, analogue from DAC to Amp, otherwise you are using the Amps DACs.
