I guess I'm now an official owner - although it will be awhile before I get the unit - I just placed an order with Modwright for a BDP-105D with Tube and rail mods.

Most of the Sources are finalized

Modwright Oppo BDP-105D
Vpi Super Scoutmaster / Shelter 510 -> Linn Phono Preamp
Magnum Dynalab FT-101A Tuner

Noise Makers
XBox 360
Gaming PC


Still need to pick what's going to feed the FLAC/DSD to the Oppo
Also need to pick the pre-amp but leaning toward the Parasound P5 as being sufficiently transparent to not mess with the sources.

FIOS DVR's can output "native" broadcast resolution. That's what you ultimately want to be sending to your 105D, so it will be the sole up-converter/de-interlac'er of your video stream. To set "native" resolution on your fios dvr, you'll have to go into your dvr's service menu. To do that, press Power> OK> Menu in succession on your fios DVR's remote. Cursor down to "YPbPr Output" and Cursor right to "Native". Power unit off with remote.

I'm trying to decide whether to purchase multi-channel or stereo DSD tracks. Does the 105D properly downmix mch DSD when using the dedicated stereo output? If so, mch is the way to go. I can listen in mch across HDMI to my Yamaha CX-A5000 or stereo direct to my Krell. Thanks for any hints.

^ It will down-mix multi-channel DSD if and only if you have SACD Output set to PCM.

However, a purpose built Stereo track may sound better than a down-mixed multi-channel track depending on how the sound engineer constructed it.

If you look around, you might be able to find the tracks available in both formats as a combo pack. It may be different for downloads, but when you buy SACD/Pure Audio Blu-rays in physical form, they usually give you both stereo and multichannel. Many also include a free download of at least one format as well.

Unfortunately, the ones I'm looking to buy initially have separate pricing for stereo and mch

Oh that's a shame. I have SACD set to DSD for output to HDMI, and it would be a pain to have to keep changing it! So with it set to DSD, only left and right main channels would go to the dedicated stereo out, the other channels being ignored?

^ Correct. No audio processing of any sort can happen while DSD-Direct-to-Analog Conversion is engaged.

Yes, of course, now I think about it! To downmix, it would have to convert to PCM. So I have a decision to make about which files to purchase...
