PLEASE pardon my ignorance here–I’m not stupid, just inexperienced with digital systems.
Several audiofool buddies have told me that I really need to improve the quality of my SACD-playing system to match the very hi-quality backend of my system(s).
Do I understand this correctly? To get 4-channel*, super-hi-quality analog signals from my MC SACDs, ‘all’ I need is a Memory Player, two HDMI cables, two DSJr. DACs, and four analog output cables?
How does each DAC know which channels to decode and output?
- With the addition of Quad '2905s to my system, the soundstage’s center focus from my left/right speakers is so excellent that it sounds better without a CC speaker, so I’ve turned off the CC in my DP and processor. And I already don’t use a ‘.1’ SW; my two Rythmik SWs are driven in stereo by the front-left and front-right channels… So…I need just four channels.
