Redbook CD players, vs. Multi-Format players
Multi format 
Tidal Music
I have Tidal and really enjoy the music library. For mobile streaming, HiRes music signal sometimes will drop off due to reception quality. Sportify MP320 would be the choice. Anyway, music is not just sound quality. Tidal 16/44.1k would be good e... 
Do we really need anything greater than 24/96? Opinions?
Yes, you need 92k/24bit. 192k/24bit would be even better, better with an R2R DAC. Or go with DSD 2.8Mhz/1bit sigma-delta DAC.  
Why does streaming need to be so complex
My son attend college. So I have the student discount subscription of Tidal which is cheaper than Amazon HD. Also I was lucky to get the Oppo205 before they close down. I am streaming MQA through 205. They removed Tidal App from 205. So I will kee... 
Why does streaming need to be so complex
Op, your Oppo105 has Tidal app. You don't need to use outboard DAC since Oppo DAC is very good. You can use Wifi or hardwire your Oppo to a router. Use XLR balanced out line level. Use a class A tube preamp and solid state amp. Use ipod or any tab... 
Why does my old CD player sound so much better than my new streamer?
Streaming music (uncompressed) suppose sound as good as CD player if you used same DAC. I like Tidal streaming esp with MQA. If I have collection of SACD and 192/24 HiRes music and they do sound better than 44.1/16. However, I enjoy reading CD boo... 
Do we really need anything greater than 24/96? Opinions?
Yes if you have young ears to enjoy HiRes. Too back many young folks listen to 329kps MP3 with beats. HiRes is a waste for old ears.  
Do we really need anything greater than 24/96? Opinions?
I have 6TB of 96/24 and 192/24 FLAC files of music. and more than 1000 44.1K/16bit CDs. I will always prefer HiRes. However, I enjoy all of them. Music is music.  
Why does my old CD player sound so much better than my new streamer?
I got my Sony DVP-S7000 from storage yesterday. Fire it up, insert my favorite CD, Wala, the music is as enjoyable as Tidal HiFi. The machine is the suppose to be DVD player but Sony added redbook laser lens. It has one of the best transport. I wi... 
Is dedicated PreAmp with Oppo 105 needed?
Sony ES TA-P9000ES 5 channel audiophile class preamp. 
Do we really need anything greater than 24/96? Opinions?
Agree well recorded and mastered 16/44 is very enjoyable. However 24/96 is better and 24/192 is even better. DSD is as good as 24/192.  
Do we really need anything greater than 24/96? Opinions?
depend how young the listener's ears are.  
If you still spin CD's their is a reference level Transport for reasonable money
do we need spin cd? i believe future music is cloud based music. make sure you cd player is able to do streaming. If you have sizeable cd collection. rip them to hd. 
$1300-1500 DAC
