This is an upgrade I've delayed far too long. My current system is as follows: H/K Signature Series 2.0 Preamp Parasound HCA-855A Amp B&W DM-602 Mains B&W CC6 Center KEF Q15 Rears Audiosource 15" Sub (with mods, of course) Sony 53" Hi-Scan Crappy Toshiba 2nd Gen DVD player from 1998 I've used that as a transport for years. I'm upgrading because of video, obviously, and also a want for DTS. My question is this: how will my stereo performance improve? Can a transport really make things sound "harsh", even though it's only transporting 1's and 0's to be decoded by the preamp? I've been wondering this for a while. Any insight would be appreciated.
