which cd player or dac with conrad johnson and thiels?

post #1 of 4

Hey guys, i am totally at a loss to what i should be getting, so im hoping you can help!

 

right now i have a pv11 preamp and mv52 amp (both conrad johnsons) and thiel cs3.5 speakers.

i used to have a madrigal proceed pcd-2 that i used as a transport and dac until it recently died on me.

i am looking to get a standalone dac or a cd+dac transport.

i have an old denon transport (ud-m3) that i can hook up with a dac.

 

currently im looking at audiolabs 8200cd as a cd+dac.

for a standalone dac im looking at rDac, m1-dac, and m-dac, stello da100.

 

what do you think i would be better off with? the 8200cd or a dac to hook up with my denon transport?

please consider my aging gear and what matches them! :D

If CDs are your main media, then its better to look for dacs which have better coax input performance compared to one that is focused on a better usb implementations( eg, arcam rdac). Along with the audiolab dac, you can look at ayon cd1s.
