TX-8050 with C-7030 analog or optical?

Post  robm on Fri Sep 07, 2012 4:41 pm

Sorry if this has been discussed here before. I just added a C-7030 CD player to my existing TX-8050 receiver. What is the preferred hookup, analog or optical (digital)? I guess the question is, which of the two has the better D/A convertor?
Thanks!

It is would be better with the optical, at least the clarity of sound would be much better.

Thanks,

Really? The 7030 boasts a VLSC Wolfson 192 kHz 24 bit DAC. The 8050 specs are quiet on the DAC front. Would you be able to tell us what it is, and if it is at least as good as the one in the CD box? Thanks again!

The TX-8050 uses a TI (Burr Brown) DAC and as you already know the C-7030 uses a Wolfson DAC. The DAC are almost identical in specs and after speaking with the Engineer; he also confirms optical connection would be best utilized for both units. If you chose to use the DAC of the C-7030, you can set the TX-8050 to DIRECT audio listening mode to utilize the DAC of the C-7030. But the two units are near identical in that aspect.

Thank you for your detailed response. I have been using the optical connection, but of course it is not easy to hear the difference.
