Was tweaking my OPPO 103d (AU) and got unnecessarily confused (I think).
I run into a Denon 3808a via hdmi, and generally bitstream the dsd for decoding by the denon 3808a. It has worked well on my previous 83 and 93, and seemed to be working on my 103d.
I then saw on the FAQ and on here (and read in the manual) that the oppo 103d won't output dsd over hdmi 1, so you should use hdmi 2. I didn't like this answer as it introduces extra complexity into my set-up. But then I thought - I am already using hdmi 1, and am getting dsd output (at least I think I am). How can this be?
Then I read a little further and I see that DSD and the Marvell Qdeo video processor chip are incompatible. So, I can understand why I might have an issue with an OPPO 103. But I have a 103D which does not have a Qdeo video chip - it has the Darbee Visual Presence and the Silicon Image VRS ClearView video processors. So, perhaps that is why I get to receive DSD over hdmi 1 as I thought I was receiving (and as my denon 388a was telling me.
If this is so, perhaps a clarifying comment in the unofficial FAQ would be good to explain the difference on the 103 and the 103D, and the next OPPO manual update could amend the note to SACD DSD Output (point 4 on Audio Format Setup, page 64?
Or I could just be imagining things.
