DAC for Audio Refinement

Has anyone had any experiences with a DAC to go with a Audio Refinement CD Complete? Preferably something in the sub $1500.00 range.
Thanks, Rob
I'd just start over with a new NAD C541i floated on a Neuance iso/absorb shelf for $600, and sell the ARC for that.
As you probably agree the Integrated and Tuner are the stars of that trio.
