The JVC chipset is still OK by today's standards, and the analog output section is also probably a lot better than some so-called high-end stuff. Recommend NOT getting into a DAC, there will be no significant improvement. Get a 200 CD carrousel for storing your least-used CD's and keep the JVC! For $300-$400 the Sony CDP-CX240 has fast CD change times, and the digital and analog output sections are OK. It may sound different than the JVC, but doubt that you would prefer one over the other. (I am also a big Energy fan, email me).
