I have the 9000 and think it has an excellent transport and also excellent DAC section. When going to a 2 box setup jitter is introduced worse than staying with a 1 box unit. Try the sony as a 1 box player and if you like it, great. If you think it needs improvement, send it to Modwright. They do wonders with the 9000 and it improves the CD,SACD, and DVD performance. No added jitter with an outboard DAC. in fact the re-clock reduces jitter significantly. They even are working on a tube output for some of the sony models.
