Of course there is a DAC inside, but that is part of the signal processing, that is responsible for any signal going into the BL5’s.

Many people claim to hear a difference using the digital vs the analog input.
IMO it is hard to a/b testing, since you will have to have exact the same SPL for both.
Besides external DAC’s which are part of both solutions, are mostly (quite) different – using different filter settings etc.
You normaly do not know everything about each signal chain!

In my view it will be impossible to compare ‘your DAC’ and the DAC solution in the 5’s!

So choose what you like best……..…or skip the hassle with using an external device, if you already now don’t notice a significant difference.

Enjoy the music.
