Re: High end processors VS low end processors/receivers, hardware differences?
If you're an analog ( turntable) fanatic as I am, you should be carefull before buying a preamp-processor. Some will convert the pure analog signal into digital form before reconverting it to analog. (analog-digital + digital to analog)
Analog fans wish to keep the signal as pure as possible.
That what the first simaudio moon 5.1 processor did. I dont' know if they have corrext this later on.
Thankfully, their Stargate doesn't do this.
