CD Transports essentially take the transport section of a CD player and place it into one box, removing the DAC. Why? Well, like a separate power amplifier and pre amplifier is designed to offer better performance than a single box integrated amplifier by virtue of being designed for a single purpose, not sharing components and having separate power supplies, etc, a CD transport is designed to read the CD as accurately as possible without any possibility of interference of other circuitry such as a DAC. As such, these CD transports are designed to be used with a DAC inbetween the CD transport and your amplifier. You can only connect them directly to your amplifier if your amplifier has a digital input.
