FWIW I P/U the OPPO BDP-95 in 03/2011. Not long there after I sold my Marantz reference 2-CH SACD/CD player, I think it originally retailed at around $2K. I think you should get where I'm going here. I have happily kept my 95, the 105 IS a steal. You came here asking for advise, I would listen to the general response.
The worst thing about any connection like Apple TV is the media that it plays.
I have the option of doing all of my watching and listening through a single box, a single digital path namely via an Arris MP2000 Media Gateway. When it plays my music files off of my household LAN they sound brilliant, and when it plays most of what the regular TV networks send out, well not so much. There are a few TV shows with bass and treble as we learned about them from CDs, but only a few.
People hear the same differences when they play various media sources through any of the Apple media devices and damn the converters in the Apple equipment. Apple as a rule puts really pretty good converters into their products, but that can't help recover what was lost earlier in the chain of devices.
