Hi everyone,

I currently have 2 DSP5000s running through a 565, the main use is for TV sound through optical.
I keep reading about how much better the 568 is.
Would I benefit from sourcing a 568 to replace my 565?

Thank you

Hi

I think TV is a bit limited for sound quality as a source, so whilst you'd hear a difference, it would be much more apparent on CD or from a good music streamer.

If you do decide to upgrade, I'd recommend a 568.2 (and ideally the mm version for flexibility) as it sounds much better than the original 568 to my ears.

If you have any analogue sources, the ADC stage in the 568.2 is very good.

Are your 5000s 18 or 24 bit models?

Cheers

George

Thanks George,

I am quite happy with the sound I have, I also play music through my laptop and it sounds great. Unfortunately one of the speakers is 18 and the other 24.

I think I will stick with my 565 as you say unless I up my source there is not much point,

Thank you again
John
