have not heard the ft1. i suggest going to see some posts on audioreview by a guy named kirby klause. i followed his advice and bought a mac 67. it is much better than my carver tx11; hk 9600; nad 4020. (i have all of the others too) i have ls2m2 into rogue 120s out of merlin vsm m....great sounding. i hear the marantz 10b is the ultimate. as for cds; i have only used ss (cal 15 and birdland dac) i really like the birdland...more musical than cal. hope this helped. if you get to a/b fanfare and some of the classics....let me know.
