@tweak1, sorry for not getting back to you. The AudioLab 6000CDT transport is just built right that punches way above it's price point. I actually prefer the non-tray transport CD feeder than a tray transport feeder that seems to get degraded and ...

I also have the AudioLab 6000CDT and when they came out with the AudioLab 9000CDT with the tray, I was disappointed it did not have the I2S connection or I would have upgraded to that transport.

I wonder what Duke Ellington might’ve said on this topic He has, he has told this story before about how especially between gigs on a train, plane and in cars he was always writing/creating news songs on any kind of paper he could find even nap... 
"The Mystery Of Sound Is Mysticism"

"The Mystery Of Sound Is Mysticism"
Sound is small subset of Vibration. Maybe this thread should have been titled "The Mystery Of Vibration Is Mysticism" instead of "The Mystery Of Sound Is Mysticism".  
"The Mystery Of Sound Is Mysticism"
Sound is a mystery and if it was not one would be killed by boredom for eternity ... Only a bored boring man can think that sound is not a mystery, or that there are no mysteries... Even a deaf man listens and a blind man sees the mysteries.....

I agree with my tube rollers here. Pop you some NOS 6922 Telefunken's in there as you only need (2) and see what you think before spending $5000.
