Ive been trying the PS audio DAC on the outputs of an older Pioneer DV-45 DVD player, ive tried it on the optical and the COAX outputs.
This unit has been well reviewed, the problem im having is that any differences in sound between the DAC output and the analogue L/R of the DVD player are minimal. In a very close A/B comparison you could possibly detect subtle differences but it would be impossible to detect in a blind test. I have a policy of not changing kit if I cant hear a difference, i was really surprised that it did not improve on my sound.
Any ideas if im doing something wrong or is it just that DAC's do not have a real sound signature ?
