Roger- as said I am only using the Marantz as a Bitstream player via HDMI and thus far have only listened to the DTS and Dolby lossless codecs and it sounds superior to my ex Oppo . .........I only use the Marantz for Blu ray .
I do not possess a SACD , so cannot comment on the what the SSP800 says on the sample rate .
Be nice if one of our more technical savvy members would put a Marantz UD7007 up against an Oppo for us ?
I like good equipment , have a good ear ( whats' left of them ) a whizz at the fundamentals of setting up and then tweak to my hearts content - I know when what I am hearing is what I like - on the technical front as to what makes the whole thing tick under the hood , afraid a bit useless !
