Right, but if you had a ~$100 turntable with a cheap cartridge, it wouldn't make sense to bother with a better phono preamp. I don't believe the other poster has said what his turntable and...

If you're doing your comparison to the Oppo with Audyssey turned on, that's not an apples to apples comparison as Audyssey does a lot more than just adjust trim levels. I'd suggest doing some...

^ Yeah, the phono preamps built into most AVR's are mediocre at best. But it also depends on how good the turntable and cartridge are - if they aren't anything special, there's no point in spending...

Regardless of new or refurbished, the first thing I would do is contact the seller or Denon and have them send you a replacement mic. I believe your Onkyo used the ACM1HB calibration mic, while the...

Assuming the files are being served from a DLNA server, this is most likely a configuration setting on your DLNA server that needs to be changed to not do any transcoding on file types that the 8802...

This sounds like a problem with the Oppo HA-1 driver, not an issue with JRiver. Can you add a screen shot showing this error? I'd also post that info in the Oppo HA-1 thread and/or contact Oppo for...

It looks like the Oppo is in great condition. You got yourself a heck of a deal there for $30. Did they happen to have the original box and owner's manual too? (yes, I'm getting greedy)

An interim solution that would be a lot less expensive than replacing your AVR would be to add an inexpensive HDMI switcher to effectively give you more HDMI inputs on your AVR. Monoprice, for...

I would assume that the No 1 will be priced somewhere between the 1008 and Diablo (probably not half way - closer to the Diablo) and the No 2 will be priced somewhere between the 1038 and Scala v2.

I'd be shocked if the PC doesn't have analog outputs on 3.5mm jacks (like the one on your headphone base unit). The one you would want to use is usually green.

Some of the hardware mods only include instructions for the BDP-103 - the exact procedure for the BDP-103D is slightly different. For someone who isn't too comfortable taking things apart, this...

I believe he meant for installing the region free mods in the BDP-103D as the exact connection points are slightly different than the BDP-103. But people on this forum have figured it out and I'm...

^ For $30 it would be crazy not to grab it. Even if it's broken, Oppo has very reasonable repair charges so you could still make a nice profit on it.

VERY few "full-range" speakers are truly full-range and almost all will benefit from being crossed over to a subwoofer. Nearly zero center channel speakers would be considered full-range. Still...

I think Dan's point was that if you're not going to use the analog outputs it would make a lot more sense to save a bunch of money and get a 103 or 103D.

That wouldn't be too hard to pull off, though I wouldn't really say that the Audyssey Pro software is difficult to use but rather it's kind of clunky / unpolished.
