The sound is really excellent.
The downside of this success is that it appears I can't use the iMac screen sharing to control the Mini if I want to use an external sound source, and I haven't come up with a satisfactory location for the monitor needed to run the Mini direct.
Thanks for all your help. The ball's in my court now.
Searched but could not find issue I am having, above is closest I could find.
For several years I enjoyed the limitations, no processing except volume of the USB Input straight into the DAC. (Room is set-up for audio does not really need processing)
Enjoyed except for times that PureMusic/iTunes updates software creating difficulty to select Oppo as output instead of built-in on MacBook Pro in PureMusic. Or the times when USB cable becomes dislodged from either MacPro or Oppo.
Those issues I have been able to diagnose and correct, but yesterday I have a new one.
Oppo BDP-105 plays audio performs normally through HDMI Input from WOW Cable TV and Blue Ray Disc but when using USB Input - No sound, like it is being muted. Also Pure Music plays on MacBook Pro, both headphones and built in speakers. But no sound through Oppo when I change output to it in Pure Music.
If I select a song that have stored on MacBook/PureMusic/iTunes from CD, information displayed on Projector through/from Oppo matches PureMusic 44.1kHz ,if I select a higher resolution recording in PureMusic, Oppo notices the change and displays the new resolution 96khz, 192khz etc. but there is no sound.
Oppo and PureMusic/MacBook Pro are clearly communicating with each other but no sound is coming out.
Any ideas today so I could enjoy listing to music while the wife is out later to day would be great.
Other wise I will call Oppo support tomorrow . . .
