I saw a good review in stereophile for the marantz 8001, i think they compared it to a cary if I remember correctly. The 8001 was in class a for sacd, which is crazy for stereophile at only 1k.

Thanks..Ill keep you all posted. The 8001 should arrive this week. Ive been emailed off line and told that the TRL Modded 8001 is excellent and will be about the best digital at any price..Interesting statement!. Ill have to do some investigating..I not much on modding, but Im willing to perhaps go this route if the price isnt too much.
I believe the Stereophile review matched the 8001 against Marantz'own SA 15S1 and the Benchmark Dac1 and 8001 (used as a transport) and acquitted itself very well.
