I've been asking a similar question.can i ask a really stupid question as i've never done it before. If i want to connect this DAP and play files to a Denon AV receiver to use with my speakers is this possible?
If so, what would i need in terms of cables. Is SPIDF the way to go? So 3.5mm out to optical in the AV receiver Also do i have to set anything in the DAP?
I want to connect my Alpha to my Audiolab 6000A amp. The amp has both an optical input, and also an RCA Aux input.
I have both cables, and I intend to try both methods to see if one is better than the other.
So, it a 3.5mm jack to a pair of RCA cables, and this would utilise the line out on the Alpha. I've been told that when I do this, I then have to use the volume to adjust the voltage of the output, but I am a bit confused about this, because the manual is not exactly clear.
The other way is to use a 3.5mm to toslink optical cable, which I have also bought to try. Someone else has said to me that the output is limited using this method to 192kHz, but again, I don't really understand this part yet. I do have quite a few Higher resolution albums which I have bought, so it would be nice to play them in full resolution.
So, I find it quite confusing, and there doesn't seem to be a lot of advice about this.
My new amp is due to arrive today, so I should be able to experiment soon.
I'll post on here when I've tried it !
