The one problem I did run into was the DSD over HDMI. But I also think there is something going on with my OPPO 980 and the DUO. I could only get stereo DSD over HDMI to work. I couldn't get multichannel to work.
But I also noticed with the OPPO that when playing a DVD that it would not bitstream the audio. So I tuned on hot plugging on that input. And that solved the problem for playing the bitstreamed audio from the DVD over HDMI but it didn't do anything for the DSD. And also when I tried some DVD-A discs it would only send stereo PCM from the OPPO as well instead of multichannel pcm from teh DVD-A.
If I connect it straight to my Denon 3808 it is fine so I'm assuming it is an issue between the OPPO 980 and the DUO. Although I guess I need to try a different input. I have the OPPO connected to HDMI input 6 but I wouldn't think the input would matter. I also tried using the audio HDMI output with the same results.
But otherwise, with everything else, they all behave the same way as with the EDGE, which is no problems with my other components. AN XBox 360, BD35, XA2, PS3 Slim, TiVo HD boxes and S3, an Algolith HDMI Flea and a VUDU box.
That's interesting, as I had a small AR problem with my Oppo 83 and my EDGE. Perhaps you'll tell us if the Duo knows what to do with 4:3 SD material. Any 4:3 DVDs get stretched by the EDGE since it doesn't know what to do with 4:3 when the 83's in Source Direct output mode. Since I prefer original AR for all my material, the 83 is now in Auto mode.
My 09 doesn't have this problem with the EDGE.
