i've had a micromega stage 2 transport and muse model 2 dac since 96 that have served me really well. the micromega has started to skip on a couple of cd's and upon getting a good deal on the cambridge 840c cd transport i bought one on a whim.
I don't have the right cable setup to test the muse with the 840c. my question is do you think i'll get a big sound improvement connecting via the muse or has the technology gotten so much better that I should use the 840c as my transport and Dac al in one?

I suspect the Cambridge will outperform the Muse. It was exceptional in its' day but is now long in the tooth. Of course, only you can decide which you prefer. Be sure you level match to do an accurate comparison.
