Question DAC out to preamp = signal loss?

Iím thinking about building a tube op-amp for my CD player but I donít have the room in the CDP for the transformer and regulator (300V). So Iím thinking the possibility to take the output from the DAC and run an RCA cable to another box (preamp). Will there be a serious signal loss to do it this way?

LOL. I have a picture in my mind of a CD player sprouting transformers, chokes and paper in oil capacitors from the top!
