I finally got my Bel Canto DAC3 setup. I got the best sound by connecting my BD player to the DAC via optical then DAC RCA to my Rotel power amp (RB-1080). Did not like DAC to my Pioneer LX73 via CD analogue in and playing AVR in Pure Direct mode to bypass AVR D/A conversion.
However the result is not as good as I expected. Mid not as clear and bass not as tight. What are the options to get the most out of the DAC?
Need better RCA, use balanced cable to the power amp, power to dac not good (it is step transfer from 110v to 210), ....... Please advise?
