Top Audio Blu Ray Player Suggestions


I am finally going to get a BRP due to number of music titles now available. (Steve Wilson made me do it) I read all about OPPO 105 but nothing else. No Dennon or NAD ,etc?

Having just returned from CES & THE SHOW, I had a chance to hear, touch and feel a number of different players. The Oppo is so far ahead of the competition you would probably have to spend over $2500- to enter the Oppo neighborhood. First and formost, it sounds fantastic on all types of media. It was one of the most impressive pieces of equipment that I came across all week. Hearing is believing and the Oppo sounds great.
Oppo is the top-dog and many report it sounds very good indeed...

Are you looking at a multichannel or two channel application? Second, are you planning to use the analog outs or as HDMI transport into a processor?
Addendum: My Oppo BDP-93 sounds terrific with the Porcupine Tree DVD-As that I have - Lightbulb Sun, In Absentia, Deadwing, Stupid Dream, Nil Recurring, and Arriving Somewhere. If you have not gotten all of these yet, by all means do so!!

Oppo is your gear, mods for them abound.
I recently received my analog and digital modded Oppo 103 back from EVS. Mods included the EVS Super Chip and Audio Magic Pulse Gen ZX RFI/EMI device. The sound of CD is killer on my headphone system: Bada PH12 Hybrid SET headphone amp, cryo'd Sennheiser 600s with cryo'd Stephan Arts Equinox cable, Analysis Plus Copper Oval Mini In ICs, Analysis Plus Pro Power Oval and Shunyata Blue Heaven power cord. All cables cryo'd and broken in on Alan Kafton's latest Audiodharma Cable Cooker.

It's hard to beat the Sabre32 dac used in the Oppo, a big reason this unit sounds so good.
