Thanks. Wasn't sure if the resolution was going to be cut down as the manual kind of implies. Well it implies it when talking about the split A/V mode I think. Kind of confusing. I'm just trying to find a go around to replacing my Parasound Halo for now.
No HDMI switching....
No HD Audio Format decoding.....
No Bass Management through the 10 assignable analog inputs...
At least now, I can just let the Oppo do all the decoding and processing and feed my Halo an analog signal. Which the Halo bypass's all circuitry and only rolls by the analog volume control when using the analog inputs. With that said, if I didn't plan to upgrade my pre/pro in the future.... the BDP-105 would have been a better choice as it has a much better analog output stage/processing/dacs. But I'm sure the 103 is gonna give me some new audio/video bliss too.
One more question I should have been more specific on.
If I turn off the audio through the HDMI outputs so I can use them for video only to send to my Plasma and Projector, will the audio be able to output from all the other outputs? As in both the analog outputs and the Dig Coax/Toslink?
Hoping to hook up my Musical Fidelity Tri-Vista Tube Dac through the Dig Coax for 2ch cd listening and have the 7.1 analog outs feeding the Halo for surround duties.
Or are they menu selectable and I will have to switch something everytime??
Hope that makes sense.
