    Do expensive cd players sound much better than basic ones?

    Thanks everyone, lots of really good answers here- most obvious to me is that a really good dac is the thing to get-it would cover all bases- for those of us streaming to thise of us with big files on our computers and those of us who play cds. the Rega DAC looks interesting especially if their cd player is so good ( thats what they call it, no other name or number) by he way, to add to my list above of grest discs, the Fresh Cream boxed set’s 24/96k blu-ray audio disc- juat astonishing sound. I tried selling my spare copy of it here bu didnt get a single taker...
  3. Item: Beatles Lps Location: new sealed and n/m Price: Item Condition: Reason for selling: extraneous Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Postage is $10 for one, $12 for 2 or doubles, $14 for 3- a bit more for WA I would prefer to sell several of these as a group, as its a lot cheaper, ($20 gets 3kilos in a postage bag, packed). I will be in Sydney, lower north shore on July 17 (then again 10 days later) so if you are interested you could collect Fresh Cream iconic first album with 4 extra tracks, brand new German pressing for Vinyl Lovers $45 BEATLES Cover Record Rubber Soul US 1st pressing Capitol- has different songs to UK release Original Shrink wrap, tape has discolouration (after 50 years..) $40 SOLD White Album Stereo Remastered 2015 Mint MINT Not played (seal broken to check that all there) $45 White Album Mono remastered 2015 German pressing remastered 2015 the one that has got auiophiles up and jumping!

  4. Perhaps a dumb question to some, but i am wondering to what extent and expensive cd player or transport improves digital sound. Of course i know in audio that the law of dimishing returns applies, so i am expecting snall changes for big bucks i am a big vinyl man but my digital system is mac playing lossless files into base model schitt dac and oppo bdp 103 for savd and high res the best digital i have heard is the Beatles hi res dvd and the Pixies Bosanova Mobile fidelity sacd on the oppo

    Thanks for your many suggestions but as mentioned i have tried all the steps in the book (as well as having numerous conversations with Interdyn). I appreciate that you have explained the rationale for changing the settings. In fact I have even tried the IR dongle with no success. As I have not ever had the remote working I have not been able to enable internet acccess for the oppo The iphone app needs to connect to the same network as your oppo, ipso facto it cannot connect to the oppo if the oppo is not connected' Further, unfortunately I am currently using my phone as a server (due to a temporary living situation) I dont use a router so cannot connect it to my internet directly. (Aldi phone data is so cheap that it is cheaper than home internet ) However having said that, I suppose I could take it round to a friends place who has a router and see what happens if I hardwire it in, and I will try the download- but it will have to do it all itself, as I cant give it any instructions Curiously it loaded all its gear onto the TV when first connected. Of course Oppo could have sold me a dud remote. A funny thing, which I have discussed with interdyn, is that the machine will recognise the remote for power on and off and opening the drawer and that's it- I I have looked at the IR in my camera and its there, although it may be getting weaker, even though my batteries are at full strength. when I plug in the external IR receiver in, the remote stops seeing the internal one but that's it

    That will only work if the player has been set up with an oppo remote in the first place and this hasnt it was bought from someone who it turned out wasnt using the renote and had probably buggered it why dont i take it back? I an going to have to take eBay to court to do thar thats next
