Gents, I just disconnected the Teac 501 and am using the Yammy CD-s2100 for my digital.  If I notice anything at all, The Yammy may be doing a better job as a DAC than the Teac.  I wonder what price point would improve the Yammy DAC in a stand alone.

Clearaudio TT5 Linear Tracker
Funny, I was thinking about the same thing.  I've got the Peformance DC also, and wondered if the TT5 would be over kill.  I'm not crazy about jumping up to the Ovation for another 3k with about the same tone arm I have on now. 
Attn Vinyl lovers - what CD Player do you use?
Yamaha CD-S2100 SACD/CD.  I run it balanced and also through my DAC.  to be honest, I can't tell the difference between running through DAC.

Thanks for the response Erik,well, I'm a complete novice here.  It's not an ideal set up.  The system is in my living room where ceilings are 11 feet high, room is approx 25ftx25ft, however it's open concept into kitchen area and just to the side ...
