I am about to order a Oppo player and I hesitate between those two configurations:
Oppo BDP-103 + Audiolab M-DAC ( same SABRE 9018 chip as Oppo 105)
OR Oppo BDP-105
OF COURSE the DAC and audiophile part is my main concern between the 2 configs.
I don’t use WiFi connection, will use one HDMI and RCA output for analog signal only.
The main use of the Oppo will be blurays and play Wav files from a remote computer.
I won’t use anything like the smart features neither play SACD.
Any advantage to get the separate or disadvantage DAC over the built in Oppo 105?
Inputs greatly appreciated!
Rest of my configuration :
Sony HX820 55 inches LED TV / Nad T757 3D MDC a/v Receiver
Monitor Audio Silver series speakers: RX6 – Bi-Amp, RX Center, RXFX
REL R-328 Class D subwoofer with neutrik speakon cable
Audioquest Rocket 33 audio cables ( Front - Center ), X2 ( Surround ) / Audioquest Chocolate HDMI cables
PS3 super-slim 250Gb
