If they took you apart you would not be able to experience things during transport. Again I point to the episode with Barkley. BYW, this episode shows him to be one of the bravest characters in the canon. He repeatedly subjected himself to something that terrified him. For the benefit of others.

Christian, husband, father, granddaddy, son, American. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me.

What are the latter sources?

Details vary, but that transporters work by in some way taking you apart
seems one of the most consistent parts of Star Trek.
