Connecting Bluesound Node 2i to Anthem receiver


I first posted in misc audio but I realize the post should be here
My connection is optical to my 1120 Anthem because my installer said the Anthem has the better DAC. Am I better off this way or using the Bluesound RCA jacks to use the Bluesound DAC. I have read posts that recommend digital coaxial. Is there any consensus on the best way to connect the Bluesound. Thanks

Try them all, pick the one you prefer. That’s the only way you will know. BTW the Node is significantly improved with an aftermarket power cable.
Agree. You can hook up both analogue and digital to the Anthem and compare. I'm betting you'll like the digital.
For digital coax, buy a decent 1.5 meter cable.
Just want to point out, if you're using the 1120's digital room correction, then you'll  have to use it's dac.

I have the BS Node connected to an mrx 720 and use the 720 dac because I didn't want to lose ARC.
@cissado,Thanks for your response. Yes I am using room correction. Should I be using digital coaxial connection instead of optical or does it not matter. Thanks again
Agree with others you should just try it both ways.  For digital the vast majority prefer a 75Ohm digital cable over toslink.  You can get a 1.5m Apogee Wyde Eye from Amazon for only $55 that’s very good — just make sure you follow the directional arrows that are faintly marked.  Hope this helps, and best of luck. 
@soix Thanks for your response. I have been looking into Coaxial cables and I really did know where to start. I don't want to pay a lot of money and I don't want to waste my money on something that is not good. I will check out the Apogee Wyde as you suggested. $55 is the price I would want to spend. Thanks

The Wyde Eye is a great place to start.  I’ve compared it to more expensive interconnects and it is still in my system, and John Atkinson actually used it as his reference digital cable for a while — not that that means much, but it speaks to the fact that it’s at least a solid cable.  As I mentioned before, if you get one make sure to follow the directional arrows that are hard to see.  I installed mine backwards once and it sounded awful.  At the very least you’ll have a very good and well-rounded, neutral cable to start, and if you find something better you know you’ve got something.  Let us know how it works out.  
will do, thanks again for taking your time to comment
