What transport for Audiolab MDAC
I am trying to decide whether I should buy the Audiolab 8200 CDQ or the MDAC. If I buy the MDAC, I will need a CD transport.
It seems strange, but I cannot find any recommendations for a transport for the MDAC that would provide the performance of a CD player that is at least the equal of the 8200 CDQ.
The concept of using a CD transport that links to the MDAC worries me, because surely there would be losses in the connecting cable that would compromise the combined perfromance of CD transport + MDAC?
I have loads of CDs which I want to play directly, so please don't tell me I should convert them all into FLAC files and play them from a PC!
I read somewhere that Audiolab is going to produce their own CD transport. Any comments on if or when this is likely to appear and what the retail price will be?
