Inexpensive SACD Player with DSD on optical or coax - Page 2

post #31 of 32
I received my used OPPO DV-980H under $100 with shipping yesterday. I hooked it up and listened and played with it for quite a while and was very impressed. Nice little player. Much better than my previous Onkyo.

Not the only option. Pioneer BDPs output 2CH DSD as 2CH PCM 88.2kHz via optical. You cannot pass DSD via SPDIF: the spec itself does not support it. My Pioneer 140 only costs me a little over $100: the cheapest that I know of to pair with ext. 2CH DACs.wink.gif

Get a modded Oppo ($1500)
Get 3 x wyred 4 sound DAC2 ($4500)
Get a good SSP for less critical sources (satellite TV) (Marants / Onkyo?) ($2000)
Good digital cabling (essential! $1000-$2000)

This might do better and you get MCH.smile.gif

But the cost of better DACs could lead you down the spiral...biggrin.gif

If you have more to spend, replace the wyred 4 sound DACs with Bel Canto DACs...

A stereo DAC that sounds as good as what is built-in to the stereo outputs of the DX-5 is probably going to cost at least $5,000 to $10,000. And you need four of them. So your $400 modification is up to somewhere between $20,000 and $40,000.
