...and a lot less mess! People going for an OPPO as a Processor are looking for simplicity if I'm not mistaken :-)

Also I expect miniDSP would reduce the sonic abilities of the good BDP-115 DACs to some degree as its a whole new box (with cheap PSU and resistors etc) requiring additional Interconnects? No offence intended to the good Sir chipping in regarding this device however.

Have been playing with the WD TV Live and this is really good....and so cheap too!!!! Come on OPPO, it's about time you put in a nice polished interface with good Gracenote integration and some customisable Networking locations and more Services (Amazon Prime, Spotify and all that stuff that these penny vendors are able to)!

The cost and engineering a complex/effective room correction system is not trivial. I would not be surprised that the next release from Oppo wont have it. At best maybe Oppo will implement a 3 to 6 band PEQ on a per channel basis - most likely to the analogue section. This would correct only the frequency response but not in the time domain.

An external box solution like the miniDSP DDRC-88A seems logical. It allows one to apply room correction that is independent of the up-stream audio chain such as the receiver or pre/pro or universal blu-ray player, etc. It would sit in the correct part of the audio chain, where the bass management, volume control and tones are done up-stream.

If you connect the future Oppo with both HDMI and analogue pre-outs to your receiver or pre/pro, will it apply correction filters for the analogue signals? Most wont.

Most of the issues for room correction are at 500Hz and below.

Maranatz SR-7009, Oppo BPD-93, MTV 7000D, LG LW6500, aTV, WDTV Live, Harmony 650 remote, KEF E301, MiniDSP(2x4), Rythmik F12G

Adjustable output voltage settings for better compatibility with power amps regarding DIRECT connection and allowing use of volume control through wider range.
