Hi guys and gals. I have a DMP which I LOVE and listen to it via two sources - one via the I2S connection to my DSD with balanced cables out to my preamp. The other source is my Lyngdorf MP-60 connected via Coaxial. So my question is: should I expect a SQ improvement by using instead the balanced output on the DMP to auxiliary in in the SSP. And assume in this case the one output functions as a coaxial and delivers stereo.
I haven’t found that balanced out in digital AES/EBU standard, vs. the coaxial output S/PDIF format makes a lot of difference. The I2S output does, but between coax and balanced which have the same signal, it’s more down to the quality of cables than the format. Worth trying though, it will be different.
Good to know, but what about via HDMI? I’ve got plenty of available inputs in my MP-60 so might that deliver a better experience?
As an aside, I thought you’d appreciate seeing this photo I grabbed from the REL FB page which prominently features what appears to be a solid array of all PS AUDIO gear! Great looking system, huh?
Please excuse the brevity of the response
