If I may I'll try to answer your MMG question and include the Oppo 103 to stay on topic of this thread. My audio system in 99% analog .. listen to a lot of vinyl. I bought the Oppo so I could listen to my SACD collection and literally hundreds of CDs. I also use the Oppo for movies. I bought the MMGs from the factory with the 30 day return policy. I loved them so much and they were so good that I actually returned them to try the 1.7s and then 3.7s. All this within a year. Bottom line is : I no longer have the 3.7s and I just ordered another pair of MMGs as a second system for playing CDs with the Oppo. I don't know of a better value in the audio industry as the MMGs. I'm not an audio expert but I've been an audio nut for 40 years and have gone through a lot of expensive speakers and have done the Apogee, B&W, Wilson Audio, etc thing. The Oppo and MMG with a modest integrated amp and you've got a very musical system.
