Want to get the best audio quality from your digital audio source? Use a quality external DAC. A DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) converts the digital bit stream from devices such as streamers, TVs and CD/DVD players into the analog signal required by every amplifier.
Inexpensive sources that include analog outputs (RCA or 3.5mm) typically include a rather inexpensive DAC inside. Quality DACs like ours use a higher bit conversion and sampling rate resulting in sound that is fuller and crisper and more like the recording engineer intended. Don't let your inexpensive source be the limiting factor in achieving great sound- if it has a digital audio output, add a quality DAC!
