Rotel optical input
I've decided to buy the cm9 of B&W second hand.
I wanted to buy the rotel ra 1570 with it. This because it is one system and most of all has an optical input for my ps4.
The problem is that it will probably take a long time before I will find it second hand. Now I'm looking for other Rotel options.
For just a little more money, I can buy seperate amps. The problem is that the ones I can buy don't have an optical input. If I buy these and buy an optical to analoge converter for about 100 bucks, is this in any way bad for the stereo audio vs the build in optical input of the ra 1570?
And if I go for the seperates, is it really better to buy the newest versions? I can also buy the older Rotel RC 1070 / RB 1070 for a lot less. I couldn't care less if I get more option with the newer versions, I only care about the audio quality.
And last, is there a change that with the optical converter, I get a slight audio delay with the screen?
