    Hi All,
    Love my AVM-20. Anyone use an external DAC with theirs or other pre/pro? I was wondering if 2-ch would improve even more with an out-board DAC (considering the P-3A $899 w/mods).

    Here is my relevant equipment:
    AVM-20
    Rotel RB-1090 (Mains)
    RMB-1095 (center, surr and rears)
    Denon DVD-1600 DVD/DVD-A
    Speakers:
    B&W N804s

    Thanks for you opinion in advance.
    Marc

    I've got both the P-3A and the P-1A in my system (ref 30 pre/pro, but I've also got B&W N804s) and I love them. They definitely added more depth to my 2 channel listening and make the 804s sing. I checked on the website and they still have their 30 day in home trial so you might as well give it a listen and if you don't hear an improvement you can always return it for a full refund (minus shipping of course).

    Cheers, Brian

    Thanks Brian. I think I will start with the P-3A w/mods and see what I think.
    I will post my findings but I probably will not pick it up for about 4 weeks or so.

    Marc,

    I would greatly appreciate some of your findings on this external DAC as I own the Anthem too. I am always looking to improve my system and I've considered your upgrade plan in the past.

    Please post when time and motivation strikes you.

    Thanks,
    Charles
