I finally bit the bullet on the last two pieces of my all-MBL system which I've been assembling piece by piece for 2 years now.
MBL 1622 SACD transport (MSPR $27,500) and matching MBL 1611F DAC (MSPR $24,750) for a total of (gulp) $52,250. Not that I paid anywhere near that much, but the money is gone now and the units are on the way. I can't wait.
I have a question .... what about dacs? Does a dac have to cost $2k or does the combination of the dac and transport have to cost $2k.
I actually have two Sacdmod 9100ESs and five Sacdmods 555ESs and these are hooked to some heavily modded dacs, for example, a custom Opus with a zap filter output stage. But, the Opus/ zap filter dac, Buffalo dacs etc .... were not near $2k on their own, even though, the dacs are better sounding than the 9100ES when hooked up to 9100ES as a transport.
