External cd player with Mac mini M1 with hqplayer

Good evening, I wanted to make an inquiry. I’m using a mini mac M1 with hqplayer, if I connect an external cd player via usb to the mini and play all my cds from this player with hqplayer, will I upgrade to the NAD Compact Disc CD Player C 541i that I have dedicated for them? It is in case it is worth removing a device from the environment and putting it on sale, in addition to the possible gain in sound quality. Thanks and regards.
