I have an Oppo 970 on the way and plan for now to match it with a yamaha rx-v659 for regular CD playback which DAC would you use? I just pulled a yamaha cdc-845 from my living room rig as my old toshiba DVD-A player moved up there to make room for the Oppo. I'm thinking if the DAC in the 659 is as good as or better than the Oppo for regular CD playback, I'll buy a toslink cable for the changer and fit it in. If the Oppo is better, the changer is going to the garage.

Thanks!

Brad

Hi Brad

IMHO the Oppo has the better DACs...generally, the newer the DACs the better they are.

Happy New Year

Aren't the 659 and the 970 about the same age? I'm sure either one are better than the 845.

Thanks!

Hi Brad

I am not an expert on Oppo...the DACs in either one should be an upgrad from what you were using.
