@mahler123 Wonder if you could explain the 2nd part of your response further? “and for redbook I use one of the S/PDIF outputs into a mini DSP (room processor-it won’t work with SACD). Before I had the mini DSP I just used the HDMI output for everything.”
Not familiar with mini DSP set-up that you mention?
However, adding an upgraded external DAC and using the Oppo as a transport is a fresh idea I might consider?
Budget would be $3-$5K, for either an external DAC or CD/SACD player.
