I use a MYTEK Manhattan DAC which I love, and it has balanced XLR or RCA outputs. My understanding is that balanced is not preferred for the 282 but what I am not clear of is whether to use standard RCA plugs or a Naim cable with 2 x RCA Phono to DIN5 (180). Which would sound better or are there other suggestions. Thanks
Some on here prefer standard RCAs, others DIN. If the DAC had a DIN output I’d go with DIN but I’m not sure the benefits of DIN are realised when there is RCA at one end.
There are still some benefits to using even just the one DIN, so all else being equal, I would go with 2 xRCA Phono-DIN.
So I tried both RCA and 2xRCA to DIN, but can’t say I hear any difference. I left the latter in place so that’s the final outcome.
