Has anyone used an external two channel DAC with their AVR for digital music audio playback?\n\nExample:\nSome AVR's have a Direct bypass feature. If one wants to use the analog ins of the AVR for lets say a phono pre for their turntable and doesn't want AVR processing the signal of the analog input they can. \n\nIn the case mentioned in this thread. Same concept for musical digital content connected to an external DAC to the analog inputs of the AVR utilizing the same Direct routing without any AVR DSP or DAC processing. Thus a true bypass sound coming from the external DAC via analog in. \n\nThe purpose of me asking of this is one if anyone has done this? Two to see if one has found significant audio improvements of the external DAC used verses the internal DAC of the AVR.
