26 thou is a whole hill of beans Mario.  :o :o :o :o :o :o
Whilst I adore the looks any piece of equipment purporting to be worth 52 thousand pounds new is just sheer crap.
If it cost 2000 UKP to put together I'd be very surprised and not VFM in my book. :-X

I will go on admiring it from a distance, but I have to work for my living- however, if I won Lotto like some I might even consider, ??? naaaa too rich for this blokie who am I trying to kid, strictly rock stars and corrupt politicians and you odd squillionaire, not working class blokes.

Any way, the cd94 complete with Mr. T'ees clock should run it close on performace through a killer dac, just a shame they look like a dogs dinner next to it! :-X :'( :'( :'(

A properly implemented USB IP DAC is a better option these days.

These esoteric transports are expensive boat anchors IMO.

Let's get serious about transport:
Audio Note's most expensive transport and DAC, check http://www.audiofederation.com/blog/archives/805

If there's a hope to commercial hifi, then the AN maybe is...now who's gonna get one and compare to our CD94 and KDAC?  :D

Next year we may be able to listen to this AN front end at Sydney's hifi show? Hopefully...

Cheers,
William

dCS Verdi on Audiogon USD 3k: http://www.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/cls.pl?dgtltran&1329062380&/dCS-verdi-transport

Is the $180k original price correct?  :o

That's more like 18 thousand not 180K. :P :P :P
Looks like a well priced buy.................but just having purchased my 21st transport and DAC I'll pass. ;)

I must admit,  I do have a 'thing' for the 80's style champagne chassis Marantz were producing. 

Have you ever converted a '94 from 120/60 to 240/50 ?
It's all about the music,, not the equipment.

You could get a transformer made or just take it from your current transport easy to do.
