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?
