Sony XA7ES or Theta Miles CD

Between the two ,which do you like? I am going to probably use direct to a power amp.
The sony by a mile. Better build quality, better sound, and a big company to repair it.
It's also the coolest transport on the planet.
The Sony is a good one box player and can be modified to even higher levels of performance. Quite honestly though, i can't recall if this model or the Theta has an analogue volume control on it or not ? Have you checked into this ? Sean
I believe the Theta is analogue,I better check on the sony.
I'm sure that the Sony is analogue IF it has variable volume outputs... Sean
