Question Digital Co-axial or Analog RCA?


Active Member
Hi peeps,

Just purchased a Blusound Vault2i which will be connected to my Anthem MRX 720 AVR either by Analog RCA or Digital Co-axial.
Initially will be using for Qobuz Studio subscription so have access to Hi-res files. Plan to rip all my 1200 Cds using the ripper - or have DB Poweramp also depending how the Blusound is with ripping.

I don't use an external DAC so its either the one in the Blusound vs the Anthem for music - and Co-ax vs RCA - any thoughts as to the best way to go?:confused:

Thanks in advance.


The best way to go is to try both methods (very low cost) and decide which DAC your ears prefer - we cannot hear your setup so difficult to judge remotely.

Whichever sounds best to you.

Sure I'll give both methods a go with and without headphones and go from there. One thing I noticed was using Digital co-axial if i pressed info on the Anthem it said 44hz frequency for the Hi res track I was listening to. Switching to RCA Analog same track said 96hz ?
