Sony DVP-S9000ES as transport for DAC??

What is your experience (for those 9000es owners) in using
this DVD/SACD/CD player to feed an outboard DAC (Bel Canto, PT..etc.) for Redbook CD's? How does it compare to others and/or how has the outboard DAC improved things?
I just picked up a Proceed DAP to use. Hard to explain other than I can't stop listening to cd's now. Right and left of soundstage is more solid while center has a better 3d image. The Sony wasn't a slouch, but I prefered the sound with the Proceed. Your mileage may vary, give it a try. Make sure and use a good digital cable.
