    I've just moved my Harmon Kardon amp into the bed room so my ATV is connected to my ARCAM AVR250 via a DAC.

    What are you using for an amp and whats the max you think its worth paying to get the most from ATV musically??

    I'm thinking of a ARCAM Solo Mini at some stage for a compact system.

    Cheers Phil

    Hey, a fellow Arcam owner. My AppleTV talks to my Arcam AVR280 :)

    At present it's connected to a Bang & Olufsen Beomaster 6500 (stereo), although it has been connected to other amps in the past (Rotel RSX 1055, NAD C300 and NADC350).

    I haven't used a DAC with mine because to be honest, I find the output from the built in DAC/Output stage to be more than good enough for what I use mine for. If I want to enjoy music seriously, I listen to CD or vinyl...

    Nah the DAC and output stage built into the CD player is pretty fantastic. It's a Beogram CD7000, arguably the best sounding player they made...

    EDIT: I use 256k AAC. I find it next to impossible to distinguish between this and lossless equivalent, although it does show a bit on some recordings...

    Sunfire Cinema Grand Signature - 800W x 6 channels at 4 ohms (Hales Revelation 3 x 3 up front and M&K tripoles side and back). Great amp.
