Default Conecting J River+DAC directly to Audio Research Power Amp????


My System is J River (Intel mini itx PC)/Teralink USB to SPdif/GigaWorks DAC (2011 version)/Audio Reserach SP16 Pre/Audio Research VS55 Power Amp/Spendor A6 Speakers.

I tried to connect the DAC directly to the Power Amp, and the sound became much more transparent.

I do not know what I loose?? Soudstage??

Does anyone have tried use J River directly to the power amp?? Results??

Any help will be wellcome.

Sure, I do it all the time, or via a digital crossover. Either USB/SPDIF or optical out of the soundcard. No preamp needed.

What is not working for you?
Take the Speaker Voltage Test!
