I am seriously considering adding a nice external DAC to my Panasonic RP56 which has less than stellar 2-channel redbook performance. Compared to upgrading amps and preamps, how big a change will I notice jumping up to something like an MSB Gold Link III? Would a combo like this sound better than a $500-600 all in one CDP? The last thing I want to do is start a debate about the importance of a transport, but I AM very interested in how big a difference a quality external DAC makes. If you could quantify in terms of % improvement, that would be even better! Thanks in advance...
