the issue is whether the external dac is better than the internal dac in your cdp. your cdp utilizes a 192kHz/24-bit Wolfson 8741s dac, which is the same as arcam utilizes in its $2500 totl cdp. you wouldn't expect that you'd hear alot of improvement by bypassing it in favor of an inexpensive dac, but it's a very subjective determination, and price is a imperfect measure of sound quality. if you're able to try out the schiit to compare, that'd be your best option.
