You can buy both of these around the same price. Modded Oppo $1200 +$2200 = $3400 AND you can buy a MC500 used for close to that. I would get the Oppo because you can play any format. Unlike the MAC which is SACD/CD only. Also, they both use the ESS Saber dac chips, Soooo get the Oppo. Mac makes Amplifiers, that's there forte, not cd players , Although the MCD500 is there 2nd from the top player they make. Its pricey new, to buy, it went for over $6,000. way over priced IMO.
