I recommend the OPPO-105.
Looking at the picture above, it looks to me like the circuit board has a lot more parts than it needs to. It's mostly analog I/O buffers that I can see. They are IC based and should have only a fraction as many parts as I see. There are probably a lot of parts that are not really needed.
Here is a picture of an efficiently designed I/O card with twice as many I/O buffers and both ADCs and DACs for 8 channels in and out:
Only a fraction the size, only a fraction as many parts, but it still has great performance. Built to professional standards, not audiophile eyewash.
But here is the big blooper in the post I am responding to:
The Oppo 105 is a changer?
I'll bet that is big news to Oppo as well as the rest of the audiophile community! ;-)
