Default CD-ROM as a CD Transport

Hello,

If I were to use CD-ROM (such as Creative) as CD transport, can I simply use digital output at the back of the CD-ROM to connect to my DAC?

Is it comparable to a CD Player (as a transport) such as CD-63?

Is there anything to be aware of...or anything I can do to get the best out of it?

Thanks,
RR.

I think you can't because of different signals levels - from out of the CD-ROM you get something like 5V which is far higher then normal S/PDIF signal - you must build level converter to connect to DAC.
