Get a decent transport and pair it with the ScottDixon DAC. You will be able to do this for less than 1K, and get stunning sound. Simple CD player or CD player acting as transports do not seem to make the cut any more these days. A supposedly great CDP/Transport seems to be the belt driven Parasound 2000, that goes for about $650, there are two for sale here. If you do not have the money to spend in a separate DAC, it can play meanwhile with its own DAC section...but for better resolution, a separate DAC is on call. No NAD will ever compete. It is time to up the ante.
