Wadia 861 SE has outputs,inputs? but finding a CD player with digital inputs isn't going to be easy only one I know of would be the Audio Aero Capitol Mark II

Audio Aero Capitole Mark II has just about every digital input you could ever want.
You can use an adapter for the SP/DIF to coax if you want.
This is how I can feed many sources to the AA's DAC and get the best of both. I only whish it had an analog input just so it could totally replace a preamp altogether.
I currently use the Audio Aero as my primary source for CDs, except when I want to play multiple CDs without changing discs (and then I use my Yamaha 5-disc player and the toslink connection to the Audio Aero). I use the coax input for playing my (2-channel) DVDs and I also run my Satellite through the Audio Aero.
Finally, I biamp out of the Audio Aero into two rooms which are my primary media-listening room and also into my office.
As expensive as the Audio Aero is, I want to make the most of it. When I add up all of the above, it's price becomes more....palatable.
sounds like a lot of votes for the opus
It appears that is is only spdif rca for the input
I'm not certain if that can be converted from xlr via and adaptor. not to mention that I am running the cable a good distance from the server upstairs to the main system downstairs--I guess XLR balanced is better for great distances on digital signals as well.
Perhaps the Accuphase has an option?
