Article: At Long Last! Listen To Your (Physical) SACDs Through an Outboard DAC in Article Comments Posted January 14 17 minutes ago, The Computer Audiophile said: Ah yes. But who knows what "jitter" is audible anyway (grin). I still say for my ears, many times hdmi sounds much better than analog out of many/most universal disc players that i have heard. They usually sound more dynamic and better bass, but i guess that just means that the dac in the avr (in my case, i use a marantz sr6013 as a preamp) is better than the dac in the universal disc player regardless of hdmi jitter. I don't argue on these sites much anymore as my hearing has continued to get worse (smile)....seems like not much i throw at my system makes it sound "next level" in my budget anymore. I will always try new amps and speakers though (grin)....i just found out nelson reed made a vintage low end speaker with an ATC midrange...that might be interesting.
