RE: Why do CD transports cost more than CD players?

I just spent a lot of money on new speakers, and wanted to start playing my favorite cd's again. But not every day. (I usually stream music thru a BlueSound).
It's pretty easy to find a used CD player for little money, but I realized that my BelCanto has a DAC already in it, so I thought it might be cool to just get a transport.
It turned out to be much more difficult to find a cheap one.
I wanted to know why they cost more, with what I thought was less stuff inside.
That's my story! :)
