I am looking for a CDP and a DVD player or a universal one. I do not know if I should go a combo. My system is Music and HT.
I have the Proceed Pre/pro AVP2+6 channel which has one the best DAC. Mi amp is the
First part basically means bypassing the DACs in a CDP and passing digital stream to a DAC/upsampler/whatever. Ideally with a transport, more $$$ has been put into transport mechanism, power supplies, chassis, etc.
Then you need to apply similar design criteria for the DAC. Then there's the interconnect between the two.
With a well-designed integrated player (transport + DAC), you can have a "one-box" solution, although some CDPs still have an outboard power supply. For a dedicated two-channel hifi system, this can make sense.
You need to take into consideration features, price, serviceability/upgrades, etc for your solution. Your prepro is quite flexible, so I would stick with it for a long time (even though Proceed is no longer). BTW - what are you current sources for CD & DVD?
Hope this helps,
