For a long time, I thought digital was digital. I always have a good setup running and was content with limitations of digital music. The convenience outweighed the shortcomings, especially while I was traipsing around the world. After quietly reading up on DACs the past year, and finally committing to eventually getting a Blu-Ray player, I found a reasonably priced Oppo BDP-105 in silver. It arrived today. It is now my DAC as well as my disc player. Everything. Is. Different. Everything. To quote @Supercool!, it is a game-changer. I never thought a DAC could make such differences in what I hear. Thanks to all who share their experiences with Oppos. This machine was much more valuable an investment than I ever could have anticipated. I expected it to be nice, but damn. Just... Day-um!
