The DAC does not come with a player. It's either you buy a CD player, DVD player or media player. These players are basically media transport + DAC which are integrated into 1 box or casing.

The DAC requires a transport or media player with coax or optical out (which are called digital out).

Media player (digital out) -> DAC

Notes: DAC = digital to analog converter

You can get the Marantz NA8005. This thing can be used as a Stand alone DAC or a Media Player. It also handles DSD files.
