Icerider62 and Tomdabomb9,

Just to clarify- I also checked audio output from Multi-channel L/R from OPPO into Multi-Channel L/R of Yamaha. No voice or center staged material playing pure direct. I haven't a clue.

Afrogt,

Yep. You and me both. But, if I ever stumble upon one of these at a price close to what you found, I'll sure as heck find out!

OK. I suppose I am just leaning in the direction of durability, as the Adcom is a bit long in the tooth. One channel has gone south already, but front stage is holding on.

JDSmoothie,
