I don't know if CA is aware of it, but they don't have applied the last speaker management firmware update that oppo did, so maybe this will solve the problem. On my setup it isn't really a problem, should I use dedicated stereo out or front out, it doesn't matter to me.
Cambridge releases firmware updates based on what oppo did 1 month or 2 before, so we get the same updates over time, it just takes a bit longer.
It's sounding very similar to the 751BD, a full, warm, detailed and open sound, wonderful on vocals, and deep bass. I never listened to an oppo but seriously doubt it could output a more pleasing sound than that. And seeing the reports on the 105 here, there seem to be a bunch of people that don't feel right with the 105's sound. I never saw a 752 user anywhere on the net be disappointed in how it sounds, to be noted.
Many CD players even more expensive don't sound as good.
Same DAC, possibly kind of a sound signature with some similarities. But a DAC isn't everything and won't do all the results on its own. There are cambridge dealers everywhere, you should try to borrow one and try by yourself on your setup, it's common practice.
