I finally had a chance to listen. I actually enjoyed it, though it may be due to the 3 shots of moonshine I had in me. :D

I can see what the complaints are. You really don't have to stick your...

That Crosby disc is one of the Silverline DVD-A's that actually doesn't sound that bad. Really enjoyable concert, too.

Surprising that they're not going to replace it. The Oppo name is gold and it is a very popular amp.

I always wished they made a HA-1 style dedicated headphone amp without the preamp section. I...

Are they going to replace the HA-1? I didn't realize it was discontinued.

It's all a matter of degree. I know the other AV forums don't consider AVS the last word in technical info and there's a lot of hostility towards us.

Guys, many of these forums are monitored, for profit enterprises. AVS itself is owned by a store and there was a bit of a purge here a few years ago. This is what you accept if you want to spend time...

Sorry you weren't happy with the pairing. The upgraded LC2 power supply has supposedly fixed a lot of problems but it sounds like you weren't crazy with the amp to begin with. It easily drives my...

You could probably use closed headphones, which will block out extraneous noises. They would also keep whatever you are listening to from leaking out. NC headphones, as a rule, aren't the best...

Thanks. It's a great sounding album to begin with, the MoFi SACD is superb. It would be hard to screw up the surround, unless you use the dope who screwed up the Genesis boxes.

I keep seeing people are recommending what they like, but they don't have the same ears as the OP. For the prices he's looking at, he needs to actually listen to the music he prefers before spending...

The X1000ES. It's due this spring- hopefully. It's an ES player so it should be more expensive but still may not match the functionality of the Oppo.

There's about 7 discs from that list I'd click the like button for. :)

How's the CTA surround from the Quadio box? It's an album I always wanted to get in surround at a reasonable price.

I'd just love him to redo Deadwing and In Absentia properly in 5.1. Both albums are too great to leave them the way they are.
