Anybody Own the Technics SL- G700 SACD Player?

Although I am very happy with my Oppo 105 (product release 8+ years ago now?) that I upgraded the LPM and EIC + pure silver ground maybe 2 years ago, I just came across the SL- G700, and the specs look amazing. A true dual mono with XLRs for $3000. So, I am curious as my 105 is the oldest product in my system. Could the SL G700be that much better? My primary uses is Red book, SACD, and DVD-A discs.

If you own one, how long ago, what did you replace it with... does it play DVD-As
