I been a member here for a while and I am not really into theaters are surround sound, but just clean 2 channel sound . I belong to a few forums but to tell u the truth i can never get a answer from anyone without them beating around the bush and telling me to spend thousands of dollars for upgrades or get into streaming.
I have been into stereo for 50 years plus and i know what sounds good, but with new technology my brain is trying to absorb faster than i can comprehend.
I have had lots of stereo systems in the past from PE 3060 TT, Luxman , to Roberts, Marantz , receivers to Electro Research 320 Speakers.
My current systems today consist of main system Cambridge AXR 100 , Project Debut Carbon /Ort Red , Fossil Audio Tube Box 4 Photo Pre amp , with Elac 2.0 6.2 Speakers.
I would like to add my Nad 5000 CD or Nad 523 CD player to my system , but was wondering if I should get a DAC . I was looking at the Topping E30 or the Cambridge Dacmajic Plus.
I also have a Nad AV716 receiver and a Phillips 312 TT all original , with a Little Bear T7 Tube Phono Pre amp , and Pioneer SP-BS22 Andrew Jones Speakers to play my jazz vinyl .
then add either a DAC for the other CD player.
I have a huge collection of CD and Vinyl and its all I listen to.
I am moving into a smaller home and the living room is only 12' X 11' with one side being all window.
My simple question is should I get a DAC for the CD players or use the DACs in the recievers. Eventually i would like to hook up my TV to my system.
Any thoughts would be appreciated .
