I highly recommend using a computer. Sounds great when setup correctly and more flexible with formats, as well as putting your digital music collection at your finger tips.

If it were me I would be using a computer while I looked for a really good transport. Even with a cheap DAC my antique PowerBook is a truly decent source. Trouble with it is that tweaks make a difference. Things like cables, processor settings, software. Better DACs. All that takes time, I get into it, have fun, neglect the main rig... ;o(
I like my old Esoteric better in the listening room, which is why I would still look for a great transport.
