A redo of the MVP881 aka DVD-A1UDCI (or in copper armor an UD9004) with 3D.

Should make a nice second hand machine when it becomes available for 2k on
Audiogon.

Keeping the A1 for SACD with analogs out to PR-SC5509 (inferior DACs to the AKMs in the Denon) and PS3 with Harmony IR adapter until then (outrageously cool looking 3D native Prometheus on the HC9000D).

That's why we practice this as a hobby, the swapmeet is where you get half price used.

Not possible, unfortunately. iTunes doesn't play nice with multichannel music, even when formatted in AAC or alac. It does play 96/24 and higher stereo, but Appletv and AirPlay streaming still resamples everything to 48/16.

When ripping and playing high resolution surround audio becomes as simple as ripping a standard CD and playing back via iTunes on an AppleTV connected to me receiver via HDMI I'll sign on. Until then I'll spin discs on my universal transport.

Well, VLC is close to being a universal player and has a Mac version. It plays multi-channel sources on my PC and I would think it would do so on a Mac. Ripping is another matter and I'm not familiar with what is currently available on the Mac. I use DVD-Audio Extractor along with other ripper's on my PC. I don't use VLC for much besides video, Foobar is my player of choice but isn't available for the Mac.

Lexicon BD-30 Oppo knockoff:



DVD-A1UDCI copied into UD9004 (copper chassis and feet, and shiny transformer cage), then into MVP881/891 (1950ies buttonade and glass add 3D to the 891).
