Get best sound from my Hegel HD20

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello!

 

Ive bought a Hegel HD20 DAC without doing my research proporly! Haha

Apparently its coaxial 1 input is suppose to sound better then the other inputs.

Why? Because hegel have put in a correction circuit in the coax 1 input which is suppose to maintain 75 Ohm throughout.

Which is suppose to give better sound and less jitter.  To hold the value down they only did this with this input.

 

Unfortunaly, my PC only has Toslink output. 

What would you guys suggest me to do so I can get the benefit of the coax 1 input?

How about something like this:

 

http://www.amazon.com/C2G-40019-Optical-Coaxial-Converter/dp/B0002GV876/ref=pd_sxp_grid_pt_0_2

 

Coax 1 is definitely the best sounding input.  The DAC also sounds much better warmed up, I leave mine on all the time...

Awsm!

 

You think thats a good enough converter?

 

I turn my off every night and turn it on before I go to work, but maybe I should leave it on all the time instead! : P
