    On a denon DCD-685 cd player , u can either have digital (optical) out, or left/right analouge out.

    Which one is best to use to go straight into a Denon avr-1803???

    I gues this is going to do with the DAC's on the cd player and the one in the denon 1803?

    Does any1 know which is technically better?

    If i take the cd players DAC , hence having to use the left/right analouge outputs, will this degrade quality?

    I have found so far that the 1803 DAC is sharper on cd music, but the analouge is smoother but a bit to bassy.

    any one else with similar probs or got any suggetsions?

    Hi

    Why not have them both connected and just flick between the two depending on what mood you´re in? Best to connect one of them to another input, VDP or something, so its easier to change between the two.

    I prefer the DAC´s in my Denon amp compared to those in my Denon CD player.
