I agree that for audio quality alone there is probably little difference between this and a good quality AVR.

I was thinking about getting the Oppo and realized that i too have an older AVR now which doesn't have HDMI inputs.
However, i can do the multi channel audio as you say.
Then i also remembered the tv in that room would have to be replaced too.....

It is always that domino effect.

Right now I'm using a Denon AVR-4311CI & Emotiva XPA-5 on my M80v3/VP180v3/QS8v3/SVS PB13-Ultra(x2) setup. I was going to get some Emotiva XPR-1 mono blocks after I upgrade to the M100's but I might get an Outlaw model 7900 which will let me bi-amp the M100's in my 5.2 setup. I'm also thinking about getting the newer Denon AVR-4520CI and switching out my Samsung PN50C7000 plasma for a projector. So many plans. laugh Probably all wishful thinking.
