Folks over at AVSFORUM think the oppo is the closest thing to the re-invention of the wheel. Great unit.

I don't have any experience with the Oppo but I've tried a few cheap DVD players, in the $50-100 range, as transports for a Benchmark DAC. While the sonics are fine, at that price level the build quality of the controls and transports becomes a frustration. I've been happier using one of the lower to mid-priced Denon DVD players. I've had both a 2200 and 2910 and been quite happy with that setup.
Hey Rotarius, not hijack this thread, but can you share a little more about your CI VDA2? Do you also have the optional power supply, or just the stock wall wart? What is the rest of your system? Have you ever compared the VDA2 to the Bel Canto? What do you think of the sonics of the VDA2 - reviews on this piece are very rare. Thanks in advance.
