    Default Wanted....dac for transport

    Managed to pick up a mint Denon DVD 3910 which I intend using as a transport.Ive always admired their
    heavyweight construction and smooth/solid mechanism.Now Iím after a dac...nothing that will break the bank...secondhand works. I was thinking along the lines of a Musical Fidelity M1 Dac.....Toppings D30 or Schitt Modi 2... Has anybody been able to compare any of these ?...Thanks Dee

    If you are after a more analogue sound from the Denon, with no digital artefacts, then I would suggest that you try the Caiman SEG. If you are indeed in London, you can pick one up from me and bring it back if it doesn't make a substantial improvement over the Denon.

    Hi Stan,thanks for the offer which I’ll take you up on.Have been using a musical fidelity E60 as a transport with a DAC in the Box and fancied a change.The Denon 3910 came along at £50 in mint condition and I’ve been using it both as a stand-alone and with the DITB......will PM you to discuss.Thanks Dee

    Morning Gaz...much has been made of the Denons musical capability but to be honest, to date I’ve been underwhelmed...although it was always my intention to use it as a transport .We shall see.....
