Theta Jade Tranport with Musical Fidelity X-DAC

Hi there would this combo with in sterophile they state Specifically designed to get the most from the established format—it won't play anything but Red Book 16-bit/44.1kHz CDs
any info would be great.

Never heard the MF X-DAC, but I do have the Theta Jade. I've had three different DAC's from the late 90's with the Jade, and to my ears it sounds best with a DAC that leans toward the warm side rather then the bright, glary and analytical. Make sure you get a good digital cable that won't be on the bright side... IC's, too. The Jade is a great transport that is very revealing, but to me it just needs to be tamed. Your taste may be different though.
