When I bought my arcam avr300 (wolfsen dacs i believe) 2 years ago, for one week i used a slim sony ps2 connected to an arcam avr300 via optical digital and it sounded so bad that i thought the stereo store played some horrible trick on me to sell the stuff. Then I added a denon dvd 2910 via analog and it was much much better (it was pretty good via optical too). Ultimately after hearing a Linn Genki CD player that a friend brought over and how good it sounded, I bought a Arcam CD73. The difference between arcam and denon was very subtle, but it was there. If the bit coming out of the ps2 are identical across the denon via optical and ps2, why did one sound like a$$?
