Wadia basic single vs Seperate box 861 standard

Does anyone know the difference between the single integrated Wadia 861b vs the Wadia 861 standard (2 box)?

Is there any other CD player in this price range I should consider using with the Vandersteen 5As?
Wadia 861 [2 box] never heard of this are you possibly referring to the Wadia 27ix and Wadia 270 transport ?
the 861 has digital output connections whereas the 861 basic doesn't have digital outputs I believe is the only difference between the two players. Wadia makes excellent products sonically and mechanically. only other player I would recommend is the Audio Aero Capitol Mark 2
