Could someone please explain to me how the Denon 3803 receiver deals with analogue inputs? I have a good cd transport and a good external DAC. Would these be wasted on the Denon? I believe some av receivers convert analogue inputs to digital and then back to analogue again, which would negate the value of the external DAC. Does the Denon operate this way? Or does the Denon have a 'pure' analogue pathway, bypassing digital conversion for analogue inputs? Presumably, in this case, the Denon would act as a analogue integrated amp. If the latter is true, any comments on how the Denon would perform with a high quality analogue input? Am I much better off with a separate integrated amp (Arcam, for instance)? Thanks for your help.
