Which DAC is best - Oppo93 or Pioneer LX85?

Hi all

I'm about to buy an Oppo 93 and a Pioneer LX85. Not sure whether to connect via analogue or digital. Which do you think has the best DACs?

I know I should see what to sounds best to my ears, but if you all scream the LX85, then I won't bother buying the analogue cables.

I'm not familiar with LX85 but are there any DSP features you will wish to utilise i.e. room correction, lip sync etc. You may also find the AVR has more sophisticated DSP with regard to bass management, speaker setup etc which may be more or less important depending on your speaker setup. Going analogue from the player will typical render these features in the AVR redundant.
