Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

I work for a small manufacturing firm

...fabricating and finishing mostly metal and exotic mterial prototype objects and fine artwork. A BIG run is 15 objects. We have the finest craftsmen and a loving happy engineering department (the Bearish 50% of that department speaking here...) To make stuff that's full of heart and soul, not meant for mass markets, uses the finest components and materials, not cutting corners, not farming work out to China, etcetc is a challenging, delicate tightrope act. And it is expensive. Our clients come back for the GOOD STUFF, stuff that really matters to them.

It must be very similar in fine audio gear, which mostly encompasses unique units like transports . Share the vision? Bend over and cough up the dough. For every really fine audiophile manufacture that's been in business foe 25 years there must be- I don't know- 50 or 100 that have gone down the tube. Support them for that good stuff- that really matters to you. Will a BluRay player work as a transport? Sure- and it will give you 90-something% of what an audiophile CD transport will. But maybe you want the feel of fine machine, smooth, pretty, made to last. Your choice.
