I select the HDMI input for Blu-Ray and DVD, and the other input when I want a pure, un-processed signal (for certain music). This also allows switching back and forth with the same disk to see which connection produces the best audio. Try it.
Cool, i will try it.. do i have to set the Marantz sound settings a certain way on the 7.1 input .. or just leave everything flat .. trim levels for speakers etc or is there some kind of bypass on the Marantz?

Yup! use both , rca to 7.1 for stereo to hear the Sabre dac's in Pure direct mode but for multi/ch sacd and movies set the Oppo to bitstream and let Audyssey work its magic, now you have the best of both worlds. And believe it or not! if the Yammy was digitizing on the cd input you still have yet to hear how amazing the 105 sounds.


You're in for a treat and congrats! And do have fun

Greetings,

Awesome news Dave! I have the 7702 on the way and will utilize that until the 8802 begins shipping with the HDCP 2.2 hardware.

Good idea Ralph. Let me know what you think of the 7702 once you get it.

^^^ Do indeed share guys as I'm not 100% opposed to an upgrade as either ticks most if not all the boxes for hopefully a pre/pro to have for a few years( blasted immersive sound) but can can Marantz pull if off again is the question

Ok, i have a chance to get a King Cobra XLR cable .5 meter from Music Direct for a great price (OPPO XLR OUT TO MARANTZ XLR IN).. maybe i should order it now.. but then it won't be here until next week and I am hooking things up tommorow morning.. I wonder how hard it would be to add it back there.. hopefully its not too cramped LOL.. or maybe i should wait and just see how my Diamondback RCA's sound first from the Oppo 105D?

I would see how you like the rca's first and go from there! You got a lot to cover as the 8801/105 combo are stellar together and as things settle in be prepared for some jaw dropping moments of whatever they are playing. The rca's will sound great and if I hadn't had identical cables on hand being the Columbia rca and xlr's I would have known none the better and most likely stuck with the rca's
