TAS has made two references (BADA and dCS Puccinni) that auditioners/owners should try hooinng up the digital sources directly to amps. I have done this with my SACD player (Esoteric X03SE balanced out was overloading my Innersound Preamp). The change has been incredible.
My question is, when you pracitce this - or suggest it - what do you do with the other sources (Tuner, Phono Peamp, etc)? I am changing cables into the amp. Is this what your intention is?
Please let me know your thoughts. I am going to audition an ARC LS26 but can't believe it would make the system sount btter-than the SACD player direct to amp.
Thanks for your time.
