I am building a TDA1541 dac and I am looking for a chassis to fit it in, but then I realized, why not buy a good older cd player that has a transport that has I2S out. So, why build the dac and then use a transport or cd player to spin disks when I could buy a not so good older cd player that used a very good transport, gut it and make a cd player. Now my problem is which one. I am looking at a Rotel RDD-980 transport. My dac won't fit in it's chassis, but I don't have an issue still buying a chassis and fitting both in with some machine work. Any recommendations would be great.I am not very familiar with what cd players/ transports would output I2S and would be a great candidate.

Oh, I did build the cd-pro kit a few years ago and then sold it. I don't want to spend the money to build another. I would rather use something more reasonable.
