Well, I already have a high end DAC for streaming. IMHO, the DAC should very likely be the most expensive piece in your system. Mine currently is but will be eclipsed by a custom built amp I have coming.
I don't listen to CDs much any more but very happy wiht the Audiolab transport.
I pretty much never am in favor of a CD player. the onboard DAC simply cannot compete with a unit that cost 5x as much as the endtire CD player.
