Schiit CD Transport on the way soon.
I contacted them about 1 year ago about it and they said they're considering it. I'm glad they're more definitive. I hope it's a minimalist design like the 47 Laboratory Flatfish CD transport or a skeletal design along the lines of their SOL. And ... 
Where is Cary Audio?
Electronic Audio Supply, Cary's sister company and personal project of DH made some fine budget gear too. 
Uturn Orbit turntable
I should have updated this older posting. I ended purchasing a new demo Thorens TD-203 belt drive turntable w/ electronic speed change and their uni-pivot tonearm. It is superb. The price was brought down so it  may be better than the others I was... 
Best cheap integrated amp
Thanks for the recommendations. Reviews seem to indicate the NAD 316BEE and Emotiva TA100 may be the best <$500 integrated amps, with the edge to the NAD. The Emotiva includes a DAC which I don't necessarily need. What do you think of these? 
Best cheap integrated amp
Though this system sounds very good I’m considering downgrading the amp for a few reasons: 1. Infrequent use the system, so I question the logic of owning a $2k tube amp.2. The matter of inconvenience of letting a tube amp warm up for best perform...

Thanks for these recommendations. To reiterate, I'm buying new. The NAD and Music Hall are the only ones in my price. I will study these. 
Technics or Thorens, need suggestions
I nominate the Thorens as I have an entry Thorens belt drive turntable w/ Ortofon 2m Blue and it’s quite nice. The suspension and better arm on the TD1600 is a big plus for sure and with a Ortofon 2m Black it would make a nice set up with your Mac... 
Rogue Audio Sphinx V3
The problem for me with the Sphinx is the class D amp section. Lots of negative personal comments of class D amplification on the AudioAsylum audio forums. It deterred me. I’d research a little more before taking the plunge on a class D hybrid amp... 
What's the best integrated amp in the $1500-$2000 range?
You can easily get an awesome tube integrated amp in that $1.5-2K price from PrimaLuna or their sister company Mystere. I’m extremely satisfied with my Mystere IA11 amp from Upscale Audio in a vinyl system which is listed in "virtual systems". If ... 
What Do You Think . . . and How Does It Work?
To those who think it's ugly, put your creative hat on and build a nice wood veneered cabinet over it. The guts doesn't have to change and your can be tailored to your visual preference. 
Jazz for someone who doesn't like jazz.
Patricia Barbers debut album "Cafe Blue'. Excellent musicians all having opportunities to show their expertise. 
Jazz for someone who doesn't like jazz.
Yes Steely Dan is superb.With out a doubt John Mayall "Jazz Blues Fusion" well recorded live album on vinyl and CD.Also look into Spyro Gyra. George Benson smooth jazz sounds.
