I don't have any experience with external DAC's and am just starting to learn about them.
I have an old Rotel RCD-950 cd player. I bought it new back in 1998. It still sounds pretty good. But as upgraditis goes, I'm curious if adding an external DAC will offer a significant improvement. Now, since the cd player was around $500 new, I'd rather not add an external DAC that costs much more.
So far I've considered the Little Dot II or Grant Fidelity TubeDac-11. Would either of these two offer a significant improvement or would I be better off with a more expensive DAC? Would you have any suggestions for a DAC ?
