What transport with dCS Purcell/Delius Setup?

I'm leaning pretty strong towards a dCS Purcell/Delius setup and would like to know from others what transport works well with them? I'm hoping to pick up a good transport off Audiogon.

Another way of looking at this: transport manufacturer viewpoint. There are few major manufacturers; most transports are either Sony, Philips, CEC, or Teac. Choose the "sound" you prefer.

Not a specialist, nyself, I *seem* to find Sony bouncy and staccato, Philips expansive & musical perhaps less dynamic... However, as Fch notes, you need a good pick-up, but the purcell should take it on from there.
The transport section of the Sony SCD-1 is superb. Through the digital out (RCA only) to my Purcell and Elgar it beat my previous (Levinson) transport easily. Plus you get SACD playback (direct to the preamp) free this way.
Why not stay in the family and buy DCS's new transport? just a thought.

So far I prefer the Levinson #31 transport with the Delius/Purcell combo. I previously owned the Electrocompaniet,Metronome,and Audiomecca units. With the #31 I notice subtle improvments. I would like to give the Forsell Ref a try. I have heard that unit with the Elgar/Purcell combo. Very impressive from the few times I have heard it.
You are correct in your statement. My long range goal is to get the dCS transport. The unit is so new that I can't find a used one yet. But I will keep looking.
