Just an aside, but I agree that most budget to mid-fi CDPs are nearly disposable due to the transport. Lordy, in the time that I've owned my used SL-1200 I've had 3 (Rega Apollo, Saturn, Marantz CD6003 or 04?) transports fail out of warranty, and both the Regas were controller board related failures. SL-1200 still spins away. For years the only way to get a solid, serviceable transport mechanism was to spend multi-kilobucks on something with a VRDSNEO or similar. Did anyone catch who the transport manufacturer is for the SchiitTransport?
