Yes. Theta DaVid and Carmen are transports. I have a DaVid and it is very good on cd's. Much better than the Data Basic 2 that I compaired against.Both are much better than the sony DVD player I was using.

Hung, I can attest that the DVP-S7700 DVD player makes a great transport for audio. I just got mine from e-bay for 2 hundred and it sounds pretty remarkable. A "high-end" level of performance for a tenth of the price of a comparable performing big name transport. Big stupid remote though, but it does cool things. HR
I just sold a Vecteur L4.2 as I don't listen to CDs all that much anymore since I acquired a turntable. Having said that I still require a replacement for my ageing Marantz CD63II and would like a DVD unit so I can replace the Pioneer DV302 DVD player at the same time.
The units on my list are the Sony DVP-s7000, s7700, and the 9000ES. Any comments on the relative performance of these three units? DTS is not important to me as Dolby Digital works great. My primary interest is the CD transport performance and video is secondary.
