I've seen a lot of DACs with USB input, but one-box transport/DAC equipments seem to be kind of rare...
The only onde I found so far is the Marantz SA8003

Does anyone know if there is more stuff like this in the market?

That Marantz also would not fall under the all in one category either, as its USB cannot be used as input from a PC (as in a USB DAC). It can only play specific files off USB media such as an external drive or USB key.

April Music Aura Note is really on-in-one and looks very good value.

Tentlabs DIY CD Player was said to be having a new USB input module coming. This is one very special DIY CD player which deserve some attention.

Yeah, I noticed this reading the manual yesterday... *sigh*

Cool, but too expensive for me now...

Holy crap, the Aura Note is EXACTLY what I'm looking for! Very nice, I don't think there are many other alternatives alike in the market.
Thanks for the inputs, guys. Man, I love this place... And my wallet hates it wholeheartedly!
