I recently found a 20 year old Pioneer VSX-9300 receiver laying in my dad's old storage unit and was ecstatic when I saw it. I plugged it in, turned it on and it works so I took out an old dvd player I had and hooked the unit together through the rca cables. Now from my limited understanding, the signal is converted into analog from the dvd player before it reaches the receiver using an rca connection. The dvd player has a coaxial out but my reciever does not, or at least not one I can see.
Am I right when I say the dvd players DAC is worse compared to the receivers? Does a receiver that old even have a DAC? And if possible, is there any way to improve sound quality with what I already have?
This is my first post and I apologize if I did not do enough research before asking these questions. This is my first step into the audio world and theres so much to learn that I dont even know where to start!
