This all makes sense...thanks very much for the clarification!
Speaking of a 'different set of issues', any advice on a worthy upgrade from a Marantz SR7300OSE? Just kidding...I know this is not the forum...
Depends on what you mean by decoding. When you use the analog outputs, the Oppo is doing the D/A conversion and, when you use its digital output, the Marantz is doing the D/A conversion, regardless of whether you are decoding/sending PCM or bitstream. It may be that the disturbances are handled differently by the two different DAC stages.
You can set it to power up to the last input you used, I believe the two options are "bluray" and "last input". Afraid I'm not at home to see which menu that is under.
