I'm wondering if anyone can comment on the 105's functionality as a digital media renderer? I mean I know it should work fine technically, but in practice are there any quirks? How responsive is it?
fwiw, here's my current system:
QNAP NAS with AAC, MP3, FLAC files (the AAC files are slowly being re-ripped to FLAC; the QNAP has Twonky installed, which can be set to transcode in the meantime)
Cambridge Audio DACMagic 100
Yamaha stereo receiver
Wharfedale Evo2-8 speakers
The receiver is likely to be replaced with an Emotiva USP-1 and an amp of some kind eventually (I also have a turntable). I'd be looking to replace the Squeezebox, Panasonic, and DAC with the Oppo. And I would control the streaming music with something like BubbleUPnP running on a Kindle Fire.
I also have a lot of Rolling Stones SACDs from when they were first released by Abkco that haven't been played in years... might be nice to play those again.
Any comments appreciated!
