Is there a way to do this without passing the audio signal through the Oppo dacs?
Yes. and you'd have to use the optical or SP/dif output from the Oppo to the equal input of the CA.
Your USB files would also need to be compatible with the player and there are also restrictions on
what can be output over those outputs on any given player including the Oppo.
If you are primarily talking redbook audio, then you are good to go.

Also check out Berlin Philharmonic's digitalconcerthall.com even though it's only 256kbits AAC (but their in-house label for purchase has up to 192/24!)

I listen to 99.9% classical/opera and still buy physical media (SACDs, Blu-ray DVD-Audio) more than streaming or downloads. My latest acquisition was the Solti RING on a single Blu-ray DVD-A, amazing!)

It's like some people buying high-end turntables for their old vinyls thinking they sound better than hi-res audio. Always cracks me up.

I always respect people's perception as I like people to respect mine. I asked a question and it was answered by Smarty-pants, your comments do not contribute to my original concern, therefore your comment is just condescending.
