Try giving the Audio Aero Capitole Mark II a listen. I was thinking of what you want to do and then I found the AA. It does it all.

Budrew, the Accustic Arts drive is pretty good, but it was beaten up by a hot rodded G&D Transforms UTP-1 here recently......My point is these old G&Ds can be found for 1K or so and, with a new laser most will need, they are competitive with the current Ikons.....Oh, the retail on the Accustic Arts just rose to over 5K recently from just over 3K so it is no bargain......
G&D Transforms took a cheap Pioneer and modified it into the G&D UTP-1.....They have been out of that business for five plus years, but they made over a hundred units which keep popping up on audiogon from time to time......Sean stocks new lasers which are about $65 or so and you can normally pick up a good used UTP-1 for just under $1,000........Lots of folks here have the G&Ds including Sean, Rhyno, JBM, Audioessential and Jonathan Tinn's Dad :-)
