Anyone tried the Denafrips CD transport?


I am currently using a Cambridge CXC transport and believe it to be a high value product at $600 retail. That said I am interested in the Denafrips transport as I could move the CXC to my secondary system. I am using a Audio Mirror Tubadour III DAC.

The direct competition to the Denafrips is the Jay's CDT-MkII.  No point in considering it without considering the Jay's as well.  And you're more likely to find comparisons between these two.
Interesting as I'm in the exact same situation! I too have a CXC & looking at the Denafrips transport. It appears to be excellent value. 
I'd rather try the CD Box RS2 T that also plays SACDs.
Denafrips CD transport?

Went to buy one to see shipping cost on Vinshine's website Transport was S$1698.00 which is parity with Australian dollar, and then shipping was s$9999.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What gives Vinshine ( Alvin Chee, Owner) ??.

Got an email, I understand now, if Denafrips have an agent in your country which I couldn't find, they are the ones you need to purchase from. Australia is even mentioned as partners on the Denafrips website. or even on the world map.

From Denafrips:
Hi George
Good to hear from you. Are you the active member in Audiogon?
We have a partner in Melbourne, would you please contact him to make the purchase?
Cc: Stav.
Many thanks.
Yours sincerely,
Alvin Chee


Cheers George


Denafrips Avatar in USA right now is $1237.72 including shipping...10-12 weeks for delivery

A comparison between the Denafrips and the Jay's would be great. As would between these and the CXC.  My greatest interest would be between the Denafrips and the CXC as the Denafrips is about 1/2 the cost of the Jay's. May purchase the Denafrips and make this comparison, in no hurry however. 

With the realization that there are not yet many out there, I am hoping to hear from owners of the Denafrips.

If anyone finds the shootout bill k mentioned, please post it here. 
I would be most interested to see it and will look for it. 
When I emailed Alvin about that he said Jay’s Audio has been making transports for many many years. He said Jay’s is the better transport.

Maybe for hi-res and dsd the Denafrips would be better, but I do strictly Redbook and the Jay’s using the I2S output going to my AM Tubadour III
SE Dac sounds great.
I believe the Denafrips is a Redbook CD player only. My Tubadour has the upgraded caps and resistors, however lacks the I2S output. 
I found the post comparing the Jay's Audio CDT2 to the Denafrips Avatar where the Jay's ended up being sold. There are some disclaimers since different inputs to the Terminator DAC were used. Seeing Alvin's comment above YMMV would seem to apply.
Judging from different inputs on the Terminator is not the best move. But hey, whatever works for a user.
