The Muse Model Eight is IMHO, the best of the bunch. Never had a problem in my two+ years of use with a Model 296 DAC.

I have had the mephisto II transport for 2 years and used it a lot. i have had no problems whatsoever but am very careful with the machine. I cannot comment on service but audiomeca has a new rep in NA and I understand he is very good. I have contacted m. lurne on a number of occasions and he has been very helpful though as of late has been a bit slow to respond as he is very busy with the new series. He does however always respond and is very pleasant. With regards to the machine, I love it. It comes very close to my turntable in its presentation. I suspect from you note that you are buying a new unit (IIX) which is supposed to be more durable and has improved display. I can't make a lot of comments on it otherwise. I too live in Canada and if you have any questions don't hesitate to drop me a note. I also have the ekianthus dac and love it too. Take care
