Thanks much for the quick reply Bob. So which is the best way to go:

1 - Digital coax from computer into digital coax to Oppo?
2 - USB from computer into USB asynchronous Oppo input?
3 - Wireless file sharing from Windows 10 computer to Oppo?
4 - Dedicated external hard drive into Oppo usb?
5 - or???

I'm looking for the best-sounding solution - that's the primary consideration.

Also, it's my understanding that the Oppo won't do multichannel audio (eg:SACD) through the digital coax or asynchronous input.

Thanks again!

Asynchronous DAC Input is Stereo only. And SACD licensing prohibits transmission of SACD content over S/PDIF (Optical and Coax) connections due to the lack of copy protection.

There are several considerations here. Using a directly attached hard drive is the simplest, and lets you play all the media file formats the 105 supports, both stereo and multi-channel.

Using Wifi or Ethernet to access files on an SMB server is very similar to using a directly attached drive. Accessing files on a DLNA server adds setup complexity, but once you figure out how, DLNA servers can offer advantages. For example you can use some application that knows about that DLNA server to browse its files and "push" the files to the OPPO for playback -- so you are not bound to the file browser built into the OPPO or OPPO's iOS or Android MediaControl app.

All of those cases involve the OPPO rendering a music file into audio. Sometimes you might want to play audio your computer knows how to play but the OPPO doesn't -- such as from a music generating program or from a fancy playback app that runs on your computer. So long as you are OK with stereo into the OPPO, the easiest way to do THAT is to use the Asynchronous USB DAC input on the OPPO and have your computer treat the OPPO as a fancy "sound card".

If you want best quality for file formats the OPPO knows how to play, a directly attached hard drive is definitely the way to start. It's simplest.

Thanks again, that's what I thought about it all (was just unaware of the asynch DAC issue). Hard drive enclosure on the way!

I'm sure this is here in the thread, but can I connect my Ipod directly to the Oppo or do I need to do something to make that connection?

Alternatively, I assume if I download Tidal on my existing computer that connected to the same network as the Oppo I can "stream" the music. I do have the computer and Oppo wired to the network, is that a better option than using wireless?

Tidal Track Numbers

Is anyone having the problem of track numbers accumulating with a 105d using the Tidal app ? The track numbers just keep going up album after album. Also when I skip to the next track it will still show the first track playing at the bottom of the app on my Android tablet. Oppo says it's Tidal fault and Tidal says it's the Oppo app. Did finally find someone at Oppo that heard of it and said they are working on it, that was Nov. Have removed and reloaded Tidal and Media app many times. Thanks.

You run Tidal on the Oppo and use the Tidal app on the iPad to interact with Tidal wirelessly.

I did not get a response in the Oppo 205 thread so please excuse me for posting this in the 105 thread because it is actually related to both and I am an Oppo 105 owner.

I am interested in the 205 but I have a question regarding the Pandora app on the 105. I currently listen to Pandora using the app on my 105 and through the 7.1 analog outs. It sounds excellent this way but with the lack of streaming apps on the 205 would I be able to use something like Chromecast Ultra connected to the HDMI input on the 205 and still listen to Pandora through the 7.1 analog outs? Thanks for any input.

^ OPPO has not yet released any details on the upcoming UDP-205 player, so nobody can really answer your question.

However for the UDP-203 player, currently available, yes. Anything you play into the HDMI Input of the player is available on the Analog audio outputs as well as on HDMI.
