Is it worth using? I currently have my CD player (old Marantz CD50SE) hooked up to my Marantz SR4200 using both digital and analog connections. I've been switching between the two and can't really decide which I prefer (or if there's really any difference at all!). If I had to choose I'd say the analog connection has a slightly more open, cleaner sound but the difference really is minimal. Presumably CD players only have a digital out for the purpose of hooking up to a high end separate DAC - I'm guessing that the DAC in my SR4200 doesn't fall into this category I just wonder whether DAC technology has advanced so far in the 10 years since I got my CD player that the SR4200 DAC is better than my CD player's built in one. Anyway - what does everyone here do? Analog or digital? Michael.
