    I ran it thru the RCM before playing and it still has some noise on it

    My Denon blu ray player that decodes HDCD is on the frizz. :/
    I ran an optical cable out of the Yamaha A-S2100 to the benchmark
    DAC and giving this a try. Sounds o.k. to me.

    Other than the levels of the two XLR inputs being at two different levels
    I don't hear any difference. (which was expected). Guessing these Cars HDCDs didn't
    use pre-emphasis.
