Streamer Options for G series

Youngling Posts: 0 Join Date: 5/18/20 Recent Posts

Genelec G series are being bundled and sold with a few different streamer/preamp combos. 

The most cost-effective and popular solution seems to be the Yamaha wxc-50. It is packed with features and it allows the connection of for eg. a turntable with a phono stage thanks to the analog input.

How do you perceive the quality of the Yamaha unit as a DAC? Would matching Genelec G3s with a better DAC yield discernibly better sound quality. eg. Cambridge CXN?

I would appreciate hearing about the other options the community is using.
