I presently have an MC-700 and a CD-100. I am using the CD-100 as a transport optically connected to the MC. Question is, should I use the DAC in the MC as I am doing, or should I use the DAC in the CD-100 and connect to the MC analog. Or, is this too much about nothing? Your thoughts.

Try it and see which you prefer. I wouldn't expect much difference, I doubt that it's going to be a day and night comparison. I use my ERC-3 balanced output with an XSP-1,in comparison to the ERC-3's digital output to a UMC-200, whilst there is a noticeable difference I can't put that down to the DAC alone, too many others factors involved.
