Pull up your Dacs
I bought an Oppo BDP95 a few months back due to its ability to play any format backwards, and 2nd hand cheap.
John R came over and we noticed that the system needed further adjustment, based on the CDs we were listening to, but after playing some DVDs, we noticed the problems gone, almost.
Well Glasslugger/Headbanger came over and left me an early Cambridge DacMagic, (not a Plus version) and I connected it to the Oppo. A/B tests (with about 10 secs between changes) showed the DacMagic was slightly better in 24bit and a mile better in 16bit. Since the Dac magic is quite old and superceded, I am now looking for an even better Dac. $500 - $1500. Recommendations ? Schiit?
I'm sitting here in that lovely place where your system has just improved to where it's never been before - it only lasts a while before it becomes the norm.
