DAC to mate with a Denon 3910

I am considering adding a DAC between my 3910 and my pre pro to improve CD playback. My question is; does anyone have any experience with a DAC/3910 combo, if so did it improve the sound?

Also, can anyone suggest a good DAC?


I have a 3910 and used it as a transport for awhile with a Peachtree Decco's internal DAC, which is pretty highly regarded. I preferred the internal DAC of the 3910, though, and switched back to analog output after awhile.

Now the 3910 digital output is going to a Beresford TC-7520 DAC with the upgraded opamps and that definitely is an audible improvement over the 3910, not by a huge margin but it's more open with better imaging in my system.
I used the Denon 3910 as a transport into a Benchmark DAC1. I thought the sound was slightly different with and without the DAC1. The 3910 is a good player. I really enjoyed the Denon AL24 processing. I have since sold off the 3910 and I'm now using an Oppo 83 with the DAC1. The DAC1 seems to fit my tastes.
