Did you try listening to the Oppo through its analog outputs?

Seems like we now "know" (ha!) that you guys prefer the DAC's in the NAD to those in the Emo, but have we heard the ones in the Oppo?

Hi Tom,

I didn't have enough time to personally listen to them, but Chris said that they were worse than the ones in the EMO. I have no reason to doubt him - he seems like a no BS, straight shooter kind of guy.

He did say how happy he was with the video quality of the Oppo, though. I'd have to agree - the picture it was feeding his Z5 projector was awesome.

Hey Randy, I know alot of the mid-level Denon's and above have the Burr-Brown DAC's... so if your Sony has a digital out (and you're using it) you may not need to consider an upgrade.

Good one, Peter. Thanks for injecting a little humor into this thread of largely fantasies.

Hey Spoiler,

Yep, I'm using optical out to my Denon 2805. Can't remember if the 2805 had the Burr Browns or not, so maybe I'm all good.

I think the 2805 has Analog Devices vs the 3805 Burr-Brown.

Many real average audio afficianado people have tried this tests with swapping out components and hear a difference. Blind tests, wife tests, machine tests. Many people have actually recorded differences using computers to track the difference or just plain using their ears and matching as close as possible the output levels.

johnk I do not understand that a highly respected person on this site as yourself can not fathom that one CD player can outperform sonically another brand. I think its time you open your ears or your mind. You definitely stereotype an audio snob of somesort...whatever that stereotype is.

For the rest, I appreciate the postings and observations as you fall into that same upgradeitus that a few/many of us fall into. Those observations may or may not be used for judgement calls for the next audio/video purchase. Sometimes it makes a difference...sometimes it doesn't. In the end of the day if one feels that their money was well spent to better enjoy their systems then why not.

I welcome the following rant that precedes this message and I know johnk you wont even jump in.

ps: Peter that was a funny.

I don't think anyone expected you to! So what are you running these days? Revel Ultimas? Magnepan MG20s? WATT Puppies?
