I hooked up an old Sony blu-ray player to the optical input on my Wiim Pro Plus streamer. The Wiim Home app under sources has CD Player (optical). Selected that and now I'm playing a music CD using the old blu-ray player as a transport using the DAC in the Wiim. It sounds awesome. You don't need an expensive DAC or crazy priced CD transport to get great sound.

Same here. Unfortunately, my Sony player recognizes only about half of the cds I have. My second problem is that I can't find a new DVD or Blu-Ray with optical output. The few players that have a digital output are of the coaxial form.

I scored a minty Panasonic Blu-ray player with an optical output for a fair price. Much simpler than adding another box and transformer into the setup.
