    I have what I think should be an easy question. After getting tired of waiting for the Outlaw 950 i have been saving to buy an Anthem AVM-20, but now that it appears the Outlaw may indeed ship sometime soon (and since i still don't have enough for the anthem) I am wondering about 2 channel listing using the digital inputs rather than analog. I can see how using analog inputs would allow the anthem to provide a better sound than the Outlaw, but when using the digital inputs, am i going to be able to tell any difference between the two? If not then maybe i'll still consider getting the Outlaw.

    This review describes some of the technology that goes into a state of the art volume control.

    Larry I am aware of the negative influences of the volume controls but I was trying to keep it simple[​IMG] Actually rereading my post above I guess I could have worded it a little different but the intent of the post was to get across that to hear the differences in DAC's in the pre pro you need to use that digital connection not analog

    What about the DSP on the HK 520?Are the HK DSP's considered any good for stereo input/playback (considering the lower price)?
