If you look into it, I think you'll find the new Anti-Jitter Circuit on the Audio HDMI output of the 205 directly addresses what Classe is talking about -- i.e.., their suggestion to prefer Coax...

I don't know of any "active" HDMI cables out there which are HDMI Ultra HD Premium Certified. I.e., that cable may give you problems if you try to send 4K + HDR video through it.

I've tried to...

I've not heard any suggestion that anything special is advised in the way of cabling for the USB DAC Input. I.e., just use a good quality, traditional USB cable. But you might want to shoot that...

I've not tried that myself, but my understanding is that yes, it plays multi-channel DVD-A discs. If you want to double-check, ask OPPO Tech Support directly.

If he was talking about a Pure Audio setting in *HIS AVR* then yes, it may very...

That's weird. My guess would be the AVR thinks it is time to shut down (because the video has gone to black), and so is switching to standby and thus doing only "pass through" to your TV?

There...

If it ain't broke, don't fix it: If your current cable is working, then no need to replace it. HDMI issues aren't subtle. It's not like a new cable will make the audio slightly better.

No need to disable it. If you send 1080p to the AVM 50 and have 1080p coming out of the AVM 50 the video processor has no work to do and so doesn't get in the way.

For the 203 the answer is simpler: Use single HDMI cabling unless that is blocked by some issue, such as your AVR not being able to pass 4K or 3D video properly.

It's pretty simple. You will use two HDMI cables from the player. Main HDMI will go direct to your projector and Audio HDMI will go to the AVR. Cabled that way, Main HDMI carries no audio. Audio...

Or nag OPPO to add Spotify Connect to the 203, as they have done with their Sonica DAC product.
