Seems intresting option (it includes also a seperate DAC but you can use only the standalone CD transport you need).
You are asking a question that requires a detailed response. I would first suggest reading Chris Connaker's 2 part review of the Sonore microRendu on CA site. If you like videos hans beekhuyzen's youtube channel has good reviews of the microRendu and the Aurelic Aries. If you have questions after checking those out, I would be happy to help you in this thread or via PM if you prefer.
Oversimplying summary: Go with low power single purpose device in audio room that prevents minimizes distortions & noise from getting to your DAC; Fewer parts of better quality, doing less to screw with the music. Increase options for graphic user interface for fun easy use not reliant on any one vendor to maximize satisfaction & longevity of purchase path. Cheers,
robdive1, the Cambridge Audio CXC is an excellent transport, you can still find the old ones for under 400.00 0r you can get the new on for under 600.00. the only difference between the two is cosmetic . they will sound the same. i use this on my Gungnir until i sold the Gungnir recently. buy a BlueJean 1694 A digital cable... from the CXC to the dac and enjoy.
