DDRe: 5E3 OT choices.
If you are asking in comparison to Magnaquest, then I'd say Yes but qualify my answer by saying that sound quality is very subjective and what sounds good to one person may not be what another person is looking for.  
The MM trannys are very good IMO and are made to sound very similar to the originals. The Magnaquest trannys will sound less like the originals for the simple reason that they are of higher quality being made specifically for Hi-Fi use. Higher quality means several things -- extended highs, lower lows, smoother overall sound, and greater refinement of sound as well. You have to decide for yourself if this is what you are looking for.
