Those Hales are probably begging for some good source material. If you can buy new I'd do it (or check the classifieds for some great deals on used (new) equipment. DACs today are arguably better than old ones. The Icon could probably be used as transport, but a quality DAC will probably cost you as much as a new player. Try the Musical Fidelity CD player. About a $1000 and has great sound.
