So, is it worth pairing my ARCAM CD73T with an external DAC? I suspect that the CD73T has a decent DAC stage anyway, but it is a few years old. I am tempted to shop around, but the obvious first choice is the ARCAM irDAC. I also use an iPod with lossless files through a Pure i20 dock, and I would expect that to see a more significant improvement. However, as the CD player is my go to source then that is where I need to justify a spend.
