There is definitely synergy within a particular manufacturer. For this reason I recommend the SFT-1. My favorite overall transport (outside of the $10k transports--which I have not tried) is the Mark Levinson #37, but I'm using an ML DAC--so again part of my preference has to do with the synergy. I have heard the sonic frontiers combination and it sounds terrific--I think you would be very happy with it.
