Look for a used Sony SCD-777ES . Excellent all around CD player but even a greater CD transport weighing in at almost 60 pounds for great isolation and jitter resistance.

Chuck - Not a silly question. I love the Teac transport that I have now, but they do not manufacture the laser assembly for it any longer. I already had a transport quit on me once and it left me in a bind until I found the Teac. So, I am just doing my homework for a potential replacement, so I will not have to do it at the last moment.
I would also like to hear from anyone who might have a spare laser assembly that they would like to sell me.
I called and spoke with someone that told me that my best money spent would be on Tri-phazers. When I asked him for a price on the upgrade, he said he didn't know because he hadn't purchased a laser assembly in quite a while.
I got a sales pitch on the tri-phazers and when I told him that I had a Valab non oversampling dac, he stopped and said if I had that dac, the tri-phasers would not be that effective.
