    Thanks.
    I don't like listen music with USB DAC...I use it only in the plane with a cancel noise headphone.

    Also look at the D-06u if only to be used as a disc player. About half the price and multiple rave reviews over the last couple of years.

    I search just a SACD/CD or CD only with AES and clock input...What I have found is too expensive for me....

    It appears that the most you are likely to find even on the highest Luxman or Esoteric model disc players for DAC inputs are SPDIF and USB.

    Since you like your current Marantz but are looking for an improvement, the newer Marantz SA-10 is reported to be a significant advance and would seem a logical candidate to consider. At least in the US at $7,000 retail it's less than half the price of the $15,000 Luxman D-08u. Hope this helps!

    With AES and Clock, there are ESOTERIC GRANDIOSO ( 30000 Euros include taxes), and CEC TL2N ( 6000 euros) ...

    Re: Luxman D-08u

    The D-08u is so good, Iím keeping it at home and I just bought 35 new CDís (I canít remember the last time I bought CDís!).

    Audio.Bill nailed it with his original opinion of the D-08u:

    Ha! Too funny. So to where are you feeding this signal to supply your Avantegarde speakers with this sound? Pray tell it wouldn't be through MSB...? Digitals only just started Mike!

    Itís really improving. Just spinning CDís, but will bring home an Aurender N10 to try the USB.

    Would love to keep the MSB home, but it needs to be in the store for everyone to hear.
