Depends how easy bucks are to you and what you want to achieve.which one is worth the bucks
True, but my comment was only in reference to using an external DAC with the P9 combo. As far as the ODR combo...it would be worth the extra coin and effort. If you really can get the ODR combo for that price, I may be sending you a PM as well.If you have a serious interest in an ODR set (rs-d7rii + rs-p90) - I've talked to a friend and may be able to hook you up.
Send me a message if you are.
and to answer narvarr's question. A specialised dac produces a hell of a lot better sound than that inside the p99. (but then if you're doing it, there isn't a lot of point in running a pioneer combo at all and may as well use a seperate processor (and potentially no cd player.)
