Pretty much the same reasons as Bob. Based on all the positive reviews of Oppo products, I bought a BDP-83 as soon as I could as part of the early adopter orders and never looked back. I've been...

It's simple - Amazon won't work with Oppo to build an app for the Oppo players. It's not something that Oppo can just decide they're going to add.


The Roku is more like a conduit or proxy that...

Yeah, the Datasat amps look great and I suspect it wouldn't cost ATI all that much to do something similar (IIRC, the Datasat RA7300 is built by ATI...).

It's not so much that I'm skeptical about the 536, as I'm sure it's a fine amp. The problems are:

1) Cost - $15k each MSRP is out of budget given that I have 6 Salon 2's and a Voice 2 in my...

On the Onkyo, you should be choosing the "pure direct" mode (or whatever Onkyo calls it) to bypass the DAC in the Onkyo to give you the best opportunity to evaluate the Oppo's DAC. However, you're...
