...do and that's they they have an input-coupling cap. It's to block the DC and prevent possible damage to the device driving that input.
I am using OIMP by V-Caps in this location. Other caps I am using are Mundorf silver/gold, Dynamicap, and OIMP (DAC, Phono, Main) and bypassing if space is available, with Russian Teflons 0.1 uF.
Do you think that the preamp input signal contains DC despite it passed a 8uF cap before exiting DAC?
Actually, the change brought by removing the cap was increased detail, frequency range extension and disappearance of the component of sound I felt as the true timber or color of sounds. Probably, I was wrong; those component is gone with removal of the cap. I still love that coloration by the OIMP caps.
A cap in the output of a CD player will block all DC. But if there were DC on that, a cap coupled pre-amp stage would block it there.
