I don't know anyting about the Linn cdp's can't offer up any advise on them -sorry, but if you are intent on buying a dac, why spend so much on a cdp when all it will be used as transport? A much cheaper cdp can do the same job unless you have other uses for the dac. Even then, the same applies.

Or just add a ext dac.

Just a thought.

thanks for that,i am just trying to get my cd to sound as good as my turntable (27 years old & still beating my cd player) i like the convenience of the cd but the sound of the vinyl !!!

Hmmm... Rega Apollo or Rega Saturn then IMO

You're never going to get them sounding the same; especially with Cyrus but you can get fairly close with the Rega players :smashin:

Well, you won't get the crackle and pop on cd's. Kind of a unique sound that only get with vinyls :D

I still think just adding a dac like a m2tech young dac or AudioLab M-Dac would do the job. As said, won't sound the same but might be as good as.
