Hi there. I am Chris, located in The Netherlands.
I have an external stereo DAC connected to my Marantz SR6012 hometheatre receiver.
Connection is by RCA cable to the analog AUX input on the receiver.
Output from the receiver is set to FrontLeft+FrontRight+subwoofer.
Question: Does the receiver use the analog DAC signal to amplify it, or does it a analog to digital transfer to separate the digital subwoofer signal and then use its own dac to go to the right and left speakers?
If the receiver uses its own DAC, then it seems useless to use an external DAC.
What happens if I remove the subwoofer from the output, if I send the direct output signal only to the left and right speaker?
Can somebody give me advice?
