^ While watching a DD 2.0 program, press Info button on the OPPO remote. The Top line will show you what the OPPO sees coming in on the HDMI input. If it is not DD 2.0, then there is likely a setting in the cable box that needs to be adjusted. For example, some boxes default to using Analog audio outputs for stereo program content.

Meanwhile, the bottom line of the OPPO Info display shows what it is putting out on each of the two HDMI outputs. If you have both of the outputs hooked up, with Split A/V set, keep in mind that audio will be muted on the HDMI 1 output (the one that should be going to the TV).

Also check to see if you have audio on the Analog outputs. A simple way to check that would be to plug in headphones.

Hi Bob,

Thank you for your reply. I am not sure if I confused you or just did not provide enough info. I am using the analog outputs direct to my amps. The info display does show DD 2.0. That is how I know that it is the channels with DD 2.0........

As I was typing that last sentence, it dawned on me that we had a power outage the other day. I just checked and indeed my front channel amp was off. My center and rear amps both have analog power switches. So those remained on. But my fronts where off. What a fool I am! But thank you for your input as it made me think about my analog outputs going to separate amps.

Regards,
James

^ Glad you got it figured out! Yes, loss of an amp can be confusing.

Anyone know of the chances of having Tidal / Spotify on Oppo, much like Netflix, etc.?

Slim chance...best way to enjoy tidal is airplay with an i-device to your avr or sonos in the chain.

I was just trying my luck, it appears they are more interested in streaming video content than music. I did email Oppo but the answer was a 'may-be', so will have to stick with ickStream for the moment.

Thanks guys.

I'm running Tidal via the pc app running on my media server. I can therefore play it through JRiver and take advantage of upsampling, etc. Sounds great!

As with any other service they may want to offer, both parties have to reach an agreement for it to happen. So even if they want to add Tidal, it's a non starter if Tidal isn't interested in working with them.

Obviously that's the case, just that with increasing 'audiophile' hardware signing up with Tidal for lossless streaming, hopefully Tidal would come to Oppo one day. To me such combo would be quite awesome.

I have my 105 going directly to an Emotiva amp so there is no AVR or pre-pro. The Xbox is connected to the Oppo's rear HDMI which works great. I recently connected the television to Oppo's optical in. I'm getting some really bad lip synching from the TV. Are there any settings in the Oppo to fix this issue?

I reject your reality and substitute my own.

Unfortunately, no. I had the same issue connecting my Verizon/Motorola STB to the Oppo via coax. The Oppo's processing is too slow, resulting in lip sync. I solved it by going from the STB to my preamp, bypassing the Oppo.

Guys, I don't want to hijack the thread so you can PM a reply if you don't mind, but I am looking for input on XLR attenuators/pads.

I know it is a common discussion with 105 owners, and I need some for a preamp/amp/efficient speaker problem using XLR cables.

Just looking for insight and a reliable brand.

I know PE has some that I think are Dayton, Amazon has Hosa and Whirlwind.

Thanks.

Marantz AV7702 / Outlaw Model 7500
Klipsch RF7II (2) and RC62II / Hsu VTF-15H (2)

If you go the L-pad route, I don't see how they will improve the already fabulous sonics the OPPO is capable of achieving. In fact, I suspect they will take you in the wrong direction.

Have you tried using the OPPO's passive volume attenuator and plug your balanced cables straight into the amp? You should hear an immediate and very noticeable music improvement. On the other hand, your systems dynamics won't be quite the same either. But if you swapped in a high-powered amp, things should balance out pretty wonderfully. My amps are 575 wpc and as one who takes great pride in my system's dynamics, I have no intention of going back to an active preamp. Especially after noticing how much distortion is induced (raising the noise floor) by an active preamp's amplified gain stage.

Not to mention that with one less component, you have one less power supply having to deal with noisy AC coming in from the street, one less power supply inducing internally-generated vibrations that remain trapped, and one less component chassis capturing and trapping air-borne and internally-generated vibrations.

Then of course there's the money saved from having one less component, one less pair of ic's, one less shelf, and less real estate space required for your system.

You can't lose going this route. In any performance-oriented industry, less always translates to more.
