    Hi,

    I have a 702ES digital radio currently connected to my AX10i via a decent quality optical cable. I am wondering whether I can "warm-up/deepen" the sound at all by using its phono connections?

    Has anyone any experience of doing this? Is better to keep the optical connections?

    Thanks!

    Hi rimibar
    I would say just try it via analog and see if you hear any improvments, or one other option could be to try adding external DAC

    :)

    Thanks Samir - that is my project for the weekend! Was hoping that someone might have experience in using this specific unit, hence the post.... Ah well....

    Thanks

    Hi,

    First let me say that I have no direct experience of your radio. However AIUI the DAC/output stage of your particular model has been tailored to minimise the thin digital sound which DAB tends to produce. Therefore you'd almost certainly 'warm-up' the sound by using the analogue outputs from the tuner.

    Regards,

    Jules.
