Anyone heard the MBL 1501 SACD Player?

I was wondering if any Audiogon members have auditioned this player yet. If so, how does it compare with its price/sonic quality ratio with other companies such as accuphase. What is it's retail price?

Thanks in advance,

I might be wrong but the last I saw MBL has not even updated this product on their website and my dealer tells me that they haven't started full production.
