My CDP is an Arcam DV79. It sounds very good, but I used to keep both this and a Rega Saturn, so I know the difference in sound. I was thinking about getting another Saturn, but suddenly thought that the DAC might be a better alternative. Because I'm thinking down the road to when I might just consolidate and upload all my CDs in lossless to my Mac. Which, Dtc, has an optical out, so I can connect via toslink.
Basically I love Rega because their digital stuff achieves that analogue sound and sounds musical for a decent price. Taylor, how would you compare the Rega DAC and the Saturn? Most reviewers seem to say that they're about equal in terms of quality, though they each have a distinctive sound.
