Pavpet, I cannot comment on the MBL preamp, but if you take a look at my review of the Accustic Arts Tube Hybrid reference DAC I added comments regarding the MBL transport that I just added to my system. The MBL transport is a terrific piece, for the details look at the thread.
thanks teejay , looking at purchasing mbl preamp , dac , and transport , to replace my conrad johnson pv14l, and audio aero capitole se mkii , sound now is very nice , but looking for more detail and front to back a little more def, any suggestions
I cannot comment on the MBL 1521 CD transport, but I find the 1621 even better than the CEC TL-0 MkII. I've had the CEC once, now I own the 1621. the MBL sounds very detailed and organic like the CEC but with more authority. I suppose both the MBL transports share the same characteristics.

I have the 5011 preamp. Prior to that I had the Classe CP-700 and ARC Ref 3. To my ears, the 5011 sounded more natural and musical. It does an incredible job of separation and individualizing each instrument. I really enjoy this preamp and have no complaints other than the unpredictable remote volume control.
