The article said the modded 105 units sounded better than the stock/base 105 and the modded 83SE... From the article, the audiocomm version of the 105 sounded best?

My conclusions are in my post..
The essence is YMMV...


We intend to do this again when we get our hands on a modwright, and perhaps throw in a Pearl KI SACD player to compare...

Also the partnering system is important.

I'll check some test files I have later, but that line got my attention. HE-AAC is for reduced bandwidth streaming applications and I have understood that to mean low quality.

But the last time I checked it did work on the OPPO and sounded ok; I'll check my test file again.

Did you produce this file yourself from the original Blu-ray? By what process?

If not, just say "no". Downloads of these types of files are illegal and are not to be discussed at AVSForum.

I'll check HE-AAC in my test suite to verify it is still working.

You might check your file sources to see if other audio formats are available. AAC itself works well, as do the original Blu-ray audio formats.

post #7031 of 10110
Thanks for your help. I'll try converting to another format and see if that improves things as well.

Also you said that you were using an USB drive, if it is a thumbdrive, Check if your thumbdrive is not too slow for the oppo to pull the data our of it.
Just put the same drive in your computer and play the file directly from it with vlc and let it run for a few minutes to make sure that vlc buffering does not matter.

I looked at the Audiocom site. Crikey!

3,000 GBP for the 105EU w\ mods.

Considering the player is 1,000 GBP, it had better sound a lot better at triple the price.

Is the 105 able to play the 5-channel downloads from qobuz.com?

What format are they?

post #7037 of 10110
They would seem to be FLAC, although I have not purchased one yet. There are 30 classical albums in 5.1 available for purchase and download in the US. Most of them are 24/88 or 24/96.

I see in the Oppo manual that the USB computer input only accepts 2 channels. Is this still correct?

If the 105 won't play these files, how can it be done? Thank you in advance!

The USB DAC input only accepts 2-ch streams. The regular USB ports allow playback of any file from a storage device.

Also multichannel FLAC files can be played back via DLNA or SMB either via Wi-Fi or Ethernet.. DSD (2-ch or mutlichannel) via SMB only, wi-fi or Ethernet attached.
post #7040 of 10110
DSD files can also be played from attached storage.
post #7041 of 10110
So it seems my best bet is to simply copy the 5.1 FLAC files to a USB thumb drive and plug it in to the Oppo? Will this also work on my BDP-83SE?

Can I use Foobar (or other) to send the 5.1 signal from the HDMI output of my PC to the HDMI input of the BDP-105? Thanks again!

No FLAC support on the BDP-83.

Choice of DVD-A? Where is that? Are you talking about the Setup menu? Where exactly?

Some setup items are not available when a disc is in the drive.

Foobar has a UPnP plug in that offers DNLA streaming. But the 105 can access those files directly on your PC if it's networked and shared. See: SMB.

What do you mean by not available in the US? Are you saying the French site won't allow downloads to US-based  IP addresses?
