Hi guys,
I have a stock Denon 3910 that I'm using for SACD, CD only. The unit was manufactured in 2004 with 24 bit Burr Brown DACs I believe. I have been contemplating getting an external DAC for music server and potentially improving sound quality of CD. I was wondering how the Denon's DAC would stack up against the wyred4sound DAC2 using the ES9018 32 bit DAC and anyone have any personal experience with both?

Thanks in advance.

Although I have not had the chance to hear either of these, I would imagine the W4S Dac2 would be vastly superior to the Denon.

Thanks in advance.

Can you use the SACD with the DAC?
