Thanks for the answers, and I would be glad to hear you opinion on the new Performas Dennis.
As far as the Oppo working as a PrePro, the 95 already had a volume control function, so this way, you just plug cables between the oppo, and you Power Amp, and you are done.
Although, I have to mention, that one of my friends has an Emotiva XPA-5 with the UMC, and a BD-95, and leaving the Processor out, he thought, that the sound wasn't as good with the oppo as a pre, and I tend to belive that.
Imagine, getting a
- disc spinner,
- a media/network player,
- an USB DAC,
- a normal DAC,
- a Decoding Processor,
- a headphone amplifier
- 4K upscaler
- Video processor
- HDMI Hub
just for 1000 $, come on, let's get rational, it is too good to be true, and i don't believe it can come close to any proper PrePro. (and I'm not talking about high end stuff, like Krell, Classé, Parasound, or Lexicon)
But these are just my 2 cents..
