What was wrong with your 105?

wse, you'll have to explain yourself...

On the other hand, I just got my 105 today. It is a keeper. Running out the 7.1 analog outs to my Yamaha Z9 sounds excellent. I am using a MacBook with Audirvana taking advantage of the 24/192kHz DAC with the asynchronous USB input. WOW. I haven't even hooked up the dedicated stereo outs. Sounds amazing to me anyway. Comparing the Audirvana version of Norah Jones Come Away With Me to the SACD I will have to give the edge to Audirvana.

I am a little disappointed with the headphone output. I think my little FiiO E9 headphone amp sounds cleaner and more powerful. This is just an initial impression though. I'll give it some time before I make a final judgement. Even if the headphone output isn't up to snuff I'm still keeping the player.

Who knows, maybe sometime tonight I'll watch a Blu ray thru it.

With unexpected (and unfortunate) high tax bills due next week, I wouldn't be surprised many folks are scaling back on or postponing their purchases till much later(of course, i'm not saying that's the reason wse is returning his 105tongue.gif)!

I will change Bitstream to LPCM tonight, and see if it helps. My VSX-94TX is getting a little long in the tooth (won't handle the latest HDMI 3D version), but after I added the Viera and the 105 to the system, my wife has reached her limit for new Home Theater equipment this year.
Cheers,

Exactly as expected...I changed to LPCM and the dropouts ceased. I spent some time over on the VSX-94TX forum, and they have reported dropouts and the "DTS Bomb" with that receiver if you haven't updated the firmware. I have the original firmware from 2009, but with the Pioneer units you can't just upload via Ethernet, you have to schlep the unit to an "Authorized Dealer" for them to update, a real pain. Some guy over on the forum has a bootleg copy you can get, but I don't want to risk brickifying the receiver.
Cheers,
Paul

Update: Just checked ESPN and ESPN2 as well as several movie channels and did not see/hear a sync issues.

Did you compare the sound using your current configuration to the sound of the TiVo Premiere Elite connected to your amplifier? If so, I'm curious to know if you thought the currrent way sounded significantly better. Thanks
post #4843 of 10260
I'm on the verge of buying 105 and contemplating some last minute decisions. Are the sync issues with Analog only or are there issues with HDMI as well? I can use the analog for music and use HDMI until oppo fixes these issues.
Is anyone using Oppo with Sony TA-P9000ES analog pre-amp? can you please share your experiences?
post #4844 of 10260
^ Analog has the least problem -- essentially none. HDMI LPCM is best for HDMI. HDMI Bitstream will show more problems, but the latest firmware includes an adjustment feature you can use as a workaround.

Yep! Some of us are not as put together as we need to be. Unexpected high tax bills aren't new to me, especially if your raid your 401k (which has turned into a 001k by now).

post #4846 of 10260
In the process of replacing 95 with 105 for the reason of making use of 105 to be used as an lossless sound processor. I want to input 3D with lossless sound files from a 3D media player. Will I forsee any problems? Thanks for any advice!

Thanks Bob for your help..

Now second question

Is anyone using Oppo with Sony TA-P9000ES analog pre-amp? can you please share your experiences?
post #4848 of 10260

Sony TA-P9000ES that was a great pre amp

I did that briefly and it was fine.

Hey Kal. Thanks for your input. I value your opinion greatly. You said you did that briefly, so went back to another preamp or HDMI? (I do have Integra 80.2)
post #4851 of 10260

Yes, I went back to the Marantz 8801 and see no reason not to.

post #4852 of 10260
have people played m2ts files with TrueHD from hard drive?

Yes, that works. You also get PGS/SUP subtitles with m2ts.

I am using Oppo 105 direct to amps in a 2.1 setup using the xo to send lower frequencies to a dedicated amp driving two subwoofers. I have been playing with the settings. I understand the trim controls (10db + or -). I detect some volume difference in the subs, but not very much in the mains. I do not understand what is happening when I change the distance settings. Trim I equate to a "balance" function, so what does distance do? And how would trim and distance work together? Thanks for any help.
post #4855 of 10260
Trim is for volume balance. Distance is for time alignment so that the sound from all your speakers reach your ears at the same time.

Use a calibration disc (e.g., AIX Audio Calibration, Blu-ray) and a Sound Pressure Level (SPL) meter to check the volume balance. Use a tape measure to set the distance from the speaker grill to your center seating position for each speaker.

Bob, you suggest using a calibration disc for audio purposes. I have been using the internal player's tones. Is a calibration disc a better idea?
post #4857 of 10260
Yes. A calibration disc will verify that you don't have some other settings errors affecting playback. I recommend you use the LPCM tracks from AIX Audio Calibration, Blu-ray.

That's the preamp I use. It's one of the few pure-analog multi-channel preamps, other than the Parasound, and some discontinued models from other manufacturers that you can sometimes find on audiogon.

It's kind of amazing that people buy a 105, and then either run the output back through A/D//D/A, or hope that the bypass on their not-pure-analog preamp is a true (as in relay-based) bypass.
post #4859 of 10260
My back left and back right speaker sound is eminating from the left and right surround. The player is set for 7.1 and I'm using the Disney WOW blu ray disc. My L,C and R speakers are directly connected to amps, the 4 surrounds are connected to a receiver that powers the 4 surrounds. I hear the L& R surrounds, but the BR & BL channels are heard through the L&R surrounds.eek.gif

What Am I doing wrong?

DSD issue...

DSF stereo file streaming from a NAS via the OPPO analog outs is the best sound I've heard, just wonderful!

Multi-channel , though, breaks up and is not listenable, is there some setup thingee other than the "multi" preference.

Also, tracks are out of order in both number and letter.

Right now I'd say that this easily out-performs a Mac-Mini/Audirvana/Mytek for DSD.

Thanks for any help with the two problems I'm having and THANKS! OPPO for now including DSD.
