Universal transport help...

Im considering the Marantz DV 8300 to replace my old transport. I'd like to be able to use it later in a HT system! Right now I thought I'd keep my EAD 7000 mk3 dac for redbook, and get a more updated trans/dac or new one box player for dedicated audio when I split the systems in a bit!

Any thoughts or help on the Marantz?

Thanks in advance!!

Be careful with the DV 8300. I had one dead out of the box and a second one that sounded great and was wonderful for about a week. I mean it was one of the cleanest and best CD player for the price, but it has problems. Marantz took care of me. Excellent service.
