Why the HD990 CD player? If you already have a Cowon, I assuming you must have some digital music files already. Why not rip your cds and then use the optical input on the HK 3490 to connect a computer? The HK 3490 is supposed to have a fairly decent DAC. I have not heard it, but I have the 3390. Excellent hooked up with a decent DAC to my computer. If you don't have a computer to hook up, there are streaming devices you could use and/or you could pick up a newer model refurb laptop for Lenovo for about the same price as the 990. But a CD player isn't going to offer any SQ advantage over digital from a computer.
