Better use of my stand alone DAC
To get better use out of my DAC and take advantage of other high resolution digital audio formats like SACD and HD blue ray audio. Iím thinking of using a good Blue ray universal disk player and an HDMI connection to a Atlona AT-HD750 audio de-embedder. The Atlona will convert the HDMI signal to optical out. I will take this optical signal to my stand alone DAC, from the DAC to the pre then to amp and from amp to speakers. This way I donít have to use the so, so DAC in my AVR. This way I can access the 24/192 or 24/88.2 content on the hi-res disks with my good external DAC.
Has anyone done this with success? Is this even a good idea or just way off base?
