I play only vinyl or fm to listen to music, but do record cd’s from vinyl on a tascam cd recorder to put on my iPhone or give to friends . I’m absolutely ignorant of most things digital, but recently realized (duh) that cd’s played through a dac will sound WAY better than through the tascam. My wife has boxes of cd’s.
So, my question: do periodic dac upgrades impact/improve cd play? If I don’t have an interest or motivation in streaming or playing files other than cd, should I be paying attention to upgrades? Suggestions for a dac, new or used, for simply playing cd’s? Many used DACs, and of course PSA gear, say they can be upgraded, which has prompted my prompted my concern and highlighted my ignorance.
Thanks in advance
