Quick questions for all you Opera owners...do you use a separate dac with your Opera or the internal one? If you use a separate dac, which one are you using? I'm trying to get an idea of where the Opera's dac places against other stand-alone dacs. And no I don't own an Opera...I only aspire to own one.
I use my player's built-in DAC. I compared it with the Opera's DAC some days ago. The Opera's one sounds quite impressive, although it's clearly surpassed from the player's built-in DAC. But keep in mind that the SA-7S1 is a 7000$ source, thus a comparison is quite unfair...
