Adding digital input to a Rega Planet

Hi,

I have a rega planet 2000 cd player. I'm not that technically knowledgeable or inclined to mod it myself but I had thought of taking it to a local technician to ask if they can add a digital input to it.

This, I'm thinking would give me a great quality dac for my computer.


Good idea or not?

I've tried a couple of portable DACs like the HRT streamer pro but the sound really doesn't compare to listening to cds through my rega.

Try a Behringer Ultramatch, upsampling to 24/88.2. They are a pretty cheap pro-audio DAC (it cannot cope with clipped CDs however - so no modern pop!).

Thanks, ok that might be what I'm looking for. I can go straight from my macbook or iphone into that. Seems very cheap.

Actually for the convenience factor, I'm happy to put up with a bit less than what I got with the rega. I can always upgrade the DAC in future too as the technology matures more.
 
I checked out the link above and from what I can tell, the guy is talking about it being used as a link between a cd player and a DAC.

Then read it again ;)

There are several photos of the DAC (one with a red arrow pointing at it) and quite a bit of text devoted to describing said AKM DAC.

Really, you can't miss it - have another look.
