But I hear the analog section of the 105 (hence, the 205) does a much better job.
Listening to audio one day and thought it sounded better than usual, I had been listening through the HDMI, further testing showed sounded way better than analogue or digital. Thsi was with my Yamaha BDS3067 Similar to the A1010 which are high grade audio players, comparing well to Oppo.
So just use HDMI now but Pure direct option.
