Right i`ve got an av receiver (yamaha 630) I know its not gonna be as good as an amp for music but it sems pretty good at the mom(am using my pooter at the mom for musaic) The thing is I want a proper cd player. Now I been looking at the nad 541 and that seems like a pretty cool one. what are your opinions on this? Also I read an faq on hifi choice about cd transports and dac`s. From what I gather a cd transport just reads the data from the cd and leaves it in digital and a dac changes it to analogue so it can be used by the receiver/amp. The bit that stumped me was that it said you can used a dac on a normal cd player and it will improve the quality. Did I mis read this. I trhough the cd players already changed it into analogue? My head is hurting so any help would be great.
