    Just thought I'd tap the knowledge of the forum. I recently purchased the F85 and I noticed after some A/B comparisons that the sound processed from the dvd player is superior to the sound processed by my receiver. It isn't as noticable playing DD DVDs but with CDs it was very noticeable. The sound is crisper and has more presence.

    Has anyone else noticed this before? I have an H/K AVR 45 (circa 1999) receiver. My theory is the DAC in the F85 is better than the DAC in my receiver. I believe my receiver has Crystal DACs. Anyone know what the F85 has?

    Thanks!

    Difficult to say unless you had level matched the signals going to the speakers with a VOM.
