I have a BC DAC3 and feed it with a Bel Canto CD1 via the balanced AES outputs. I can say that the DAC 3's DAC sounds far superior to the CD1's internal DAC, and I believe that the CD2 is inferior to the CD1 which was discontinued after 100 units sold as they moved to the half chassis size models. They really are trying to sell the combo, the CD2 into the DAC3 then into your amp directly or into your preamp. The DAC3 really is worth every penny, but I know you have already spent a bunch on the CD2.
