Streamer to go with YAMAHA AS1200


Standard Member
Hello guys i'm a bit new to this so please bare with me .... I have recently acquired a Yamaha as1200 amp ,and as you know its all analogue , i have also got a Marantz cr612 (melody x ) . Can i use the melody as cd player and streamer and hook it up to the Yamaha amp ? hoping it would sound better than the Marantz amp ... which although is ok and good value , i think the sound through the yamaha would be superior . is this feasible or am i talking rubbish ? :)Or should i just buy something like a Cambridge CXN or similar ... ?
thanks in advance

A Google image search does show the Marantz has an analogue audio out socket so it should work, worth a go even if it's just temporary until you get something else.

Interested to know how much better it sounds through the Yamaha considering how much that amp costs.
