What are CDplayers out there with accessible DAC ?

I understand the Cambridge Audio 840C's DAC can be used on it's own. Any other affordable players out there that can do this? How about the QUAD CDP-2 ?

I am thinking of using the Wadia iTransport.

Thanks if you can help!

Yes, Quad CDP or CDP-2 have both coax and toslink inputs so you can connect an external digital source.

Not as affordable, but the resolution Audio Opus 21 has a coax input for connecting an external source.

A nice feature of both the Quad and the Opus 21 is that they have built-in remoted controlled variable volume control. So, if all of your sources are digital and are going through the CD player, you don't need a pre-amp. You can connect the CD player directly to a power amp and control the system's volume through the CD player.
