Even though the player is great, check around locally for pricing. See the Oppo website for a retailed near you. The price on Amazon is not the normal selling price, which should be $999.
PS Oppo, if you read this....add an ipod USB port that pulls the signal bypassing the ipod DAC and playing it through the Oppo DAC. Do that and you have have a truely world class product.
Please consider this a placeholder review; I plan to greatly expand on it in the future; especially as I have spent little time with standard cd on the player.
My main purpose in buying this player was for hi-res audio; I don't even own a hi-def television. I was hoping to find a relatively inexpensive player (by high end standards) that would make hi-res music sound better than cd's currently do on my cd front end. It's replacing a Pioneer DV-578A that was great for the price, but was of lower sonic quality than the rest of my system.
I'm now at around 5 weeks of the unit being powered up for burn in. I'm using the Shunyata Venom power cord, & a 90's Tara (unbalanced RCA) "Analog Standard" interconnect.
While very sensitive to the mastering quality of what it's playing, on hi res this puppy is STAGGERING. I am stunned that this level of musicality is available at this price point. The only better front end I have ever owned was an entry level (around 2k in early 90's dollars) Well Tempered Record Player with a Blue Point standard; & that is based on a very OLD memory as I had to sell the TT in 1995.
2 tips for new owners:
1. People have told me it needs 100-500 hours of burn in before it sounds it's best. That has been my experience also. While it actually sounds quite good right out of the box, at 5 weeks it's still getting better & better.Read more ›
There is one shortcoming which is maddening but fixable. The device can play MP3's -- indeed it plays them superbly. But you can't connect your iPod to the Oppo as it doesn't recognize the device. Your only easy option is to connect an external hard drive or USB memory stick. I could probably live with that. But the part that drives me crazy is that you need to turn on your video monitor to navigate all the menus and in order to play a track. I tried to memorize the sequence of button presses and arrow moves not to have to fire up my LCD projector to play an MP3 but couldn't find a way. Couldn't they have included even a 3-line text display on the device so what you wouldn't need to run your TV to play music. After all this is as much a CD/ music player as a DVD/video device.
There is solution - I bought a small 8" LCD screen for about $100, which I use to navigate the menus to play music. Seems silly and is annoying, but it works, and I still consider it worthwhile for an otherwise superb machine.
Two other notes: in theory you can network the device with the right kind of hard drive, although again this involves a computer or some other way to sort through directories.
Second, the Oppo works very well with Netflix, which allowed me to get rid of my Roku.
