The Oppo BDP-105 ($1,199) is a Swiss knife. ...A BD/DVD player, a DAC, a preamp, a digital computer, an analog device, a Headphone amp, a remote controlled volume level, a multichannel music SACD/DVD Audio/Blu-ray Audio player, a HDCD decoder/player, a music/movie server, a smart applications provider, a downloader of all sorts a hi-five high files, a player of all res and def audio clouds, an Apple//Microsoft associate, ...it has all the connections; XLR, RCA, Optical, Coaxial, USB, HDMI, Ethernet, Headphones, Stereo, Multichannel, and because it can be used as a preamp and DAC many of those connections are outputs as well.
If Oppo can do all of that, and so much more like direct DSD audio files downloading, then other product's manufacturers have a good leader on who to rely and take example of.
...I truly think IMHO.
We are living in the year 2015; it is time to live with our times, in full wisdom. ...With all our technologies. ...Benefits from them all for all.
Rotel can certainly advance with our times.
...After all, Jazz is a balanced musical act/art.
