Hum usually means you have a ground loop. The ground prong of the 3-pin OPPO plug is likely providing the path back to ground to let the current flow. (Your older player may have had a 2-prong...

Do you want to use the Crossover in the Sub? Normally you would use the Crossover in the 105.

Nope. The 103 will play SACD discs as HDMI LPCM 5.1 (or 2.0 according to the track you select) 88.2KHz 20-bit into the D2.

Yes you should be able to adjust it that way without having to re-run ARC, presuming the Sub isn't handling XLR input differently for some silly reason.
