Sheesh. Is there really no way to please people? People bitched and bitched about not liking their dithering algorithm, so they give you a way to turn it off and that's still not good enough? I'm...

It depends on what you're connect it to. A HDMI connection will use the DAC in the device you have connected the Oppo to. Using the analog outputs will use the DAC in the Oppo. So assuming no...

JRiver / JRemote is just one of many examples and the one I happen to use. Others have found some very nice DLNA control apps that they use to stream audio from their NAS to the Oppo. You may want...

Something is in the oven, but it's hard to say how long it will be before it's released as they obviously want to make sure it's a good fix. With Bluray, it's never a bad idea to have a backup...

There are lots of other options for playing music on the Oppo, such as running a PC with JRiver Media Center and using the excellent JRemote app on an iOS device. This combination gives you a...

If the amp has only 1 switch on it to switch between XLR and RCA for all channels, then doing this would make sense if you want to use the 105's XLR outputs for front left/right. But there's really...

I recall hearing of some cases where the USB cable was the culprit, so trying a different USB cable would be something to try if it happens again.

He's talking about a cable with a XLR connector on one end and RCA on the other. There's really no reason to use one with the Oppo, just go with what your amp has for connections on both ends.

Either is fine.


One specific example is that I know a number of people have been very happy pairing their 105/105D's with Parasound Halo amps.

There are more limitations on the 103, such as no ability to adjust volume for DSD (it MUST be set to convert to LPCM if you intend to use the 103's volume control), lower end DAC's, and a volume...

Oppo doesn't market it as a preamp because that's not it's primary function and there are some limitations as a result of that, such as no volume knob on the front panel. But that doesn't mean that...

Perhaps you could offer something helpful rather than just rolling your eyes. While there are amps that don't pair well with using the 105 as a preamp, quite a few people have had great results...

Exactly.


That will require some experimentation and I would suggest starting on the low side, but the goal should probably be to set it to a level where the calibrated levels for the speakers...

You're correct that the Denon preamp outputs are going to be affected by the Denon's volume control, just as the subwoofer output is. Assuming you only want to use the Onkyo's amps, you should be...

I imagine they may consider doing that some point, but I think their feeling is that until all the kinks have been worked out with the feature, it's better to have the default be something safe.

It will need to get power from an external source and remote control of it won't be integrated into the Oppo remote, but otherwise it should work just fine.
