I prefer no cutoff filter so I can have playback up to 100 KHz and hear the extra presence of harmonic overtones. I've read that if you allow playback up to 100 KHz, it could damage your speakers? If that's true, would they die gradually or instantly? What if I have a player that doesn't give the SACD specs? Should I not play SACDs on it in order to protect my speakers? I contacted Oppo about their BDP-83 and they claim that the 50-KHz cutoff filter is engaged so that DSD modulation noise won't be heard. However, I have a Pioneer Elite DV-58AV which doesn't state whether or not it uses a 50-KHz cutoff filter. If I don't get an answer to this from Pioneer, how can I tell whether or not it uses a 50-KHz cutoff filter?
