I own a currently own a Denon 3803 but am not that happy with the 2-channel performance (multichannel is fantastic!). Currently, I have a Nakamichi cd player attached to the Denon via a digital cable, using the Denon's DACs, processing etc. My question is, would I be better off using the Nakamichi as a cd transport and connecting to the Denon via an external DAC (such as the Bel Canto DAC2), using an analogue interconnect. That is, will the Denon perform at a level even close to that of a high quality 2-channel amplifier if I take it's DACs out of the equation and use something of a better quality? Or is there something else that would prevent the Denon performing as a high-quality 2-channel amp? Thanks for your views.
