  1. Cazzesman, Enjoyed reading your post!!! Further to Snoopy8's post...........and doomigee's!! I have read where quite a few OPPO 105 owners using a pre have dialled down output volume level from 100 to mid 90's and heard less distortion as they believed at 100 it was too hot and clipping their pre's. You don't HAVE TO set volume to fixed when going through a pre..........why not leave it variable and use BOTH volume controls to find "sweetspot" Worth a try. I had a OPPO 83 JLTI Level 2 which did the job nicely till I replaced it with a 205. FWIW I use my 205 DIRECT via XLR into active ATC's with very decent results after preferring the SQ versus having an ME24 pre in the mix. Why not have a listen to both in "Pre mode" and see what you think of SQ then? Some would say one less box and set of cables may mean less colouring of the sound!!!!
  2. OK so it appears that I may have gone off a tad .........ahem..........half cocked. My original Post still holds true for Game 1 (just about to commence) but apparently Game 2 on Sat night WILL be shown on 9HD. Hopefully same holds true for remaining 3 games after that. Hey we will probably get pumped anyway...........at least it can LOOK good..
  3. So once again the UTTER MORONS at Channel 9 SHAFT us with their baffling use of their HD channel. Aussie cricket has been big news lately (for all the wrong reasons!!) so what do they do? 1. Proceed to only show matches on SD GEM............yeah thanks a lot 2. Secure SOLE broadcasting rights to ensure we have NO OTHER OPTION of seeing A SINGLE BALL BOWLED in HD!!! 3. Rub salt in wound and kick sand in face by showing............WAIT FOR IT............... ........................................................................................................................................... Reruns of World's Funniest Videos followed by Embarrassing Bodies on their HD channel at the EXACT time the Cricket's on!!!. STUPENDOUSLY MORONIC TO THE NTH DEGREE.................... I REST MY CASE

    Pre Amp Request

    Jason, Don't laugh......... but have you tried listening with your OPPO 205 connected DIRECT into your Parasounds? I took my well regarded ME 24 pre out of the system after hearing my OPPO 205 DIRECT into my active ATC's. Sometimes less...........can be more...........just a thought.
  5. No probs.......I recommend Buyer does it regardless by end of 2018 whilst it's still free. A simple case of going to nearest Service Agent It was a design flaw by Onkyo/Integra that affected quite a few models including mine.....(now fixed) Apparently the original HDMI PCB design placed caps, which heated up, too close to something else which caused intermittent audio dropouts eventuating in total failure. Replacement boards have design changes which totally negate the issue. GLWTS
  6. Can't believe this hasn't sold yet..... A superb unit with Audyssey XT32 Room EQ on board.............LOVE my 80.3.... Surely SOMEONE out there considering separates can get by without needing 4K passthrough and ATMOS!!!!!!!!.........(just like I do.....) This had an RRP of $4K and will KILL most AVR's for SQ............ HDMI board issue can STILL be resolved UNDER WARRANTY till end of this year!!!!

    Oppo 205 found

Don't dally long or you will miss out. FWIW..........I LOVE mine..........a GREAT machine!!!!
  8. Onthebeach, I would highly recommend a used OPPO 103 (or 105 for it's superior analog if required). If budget stretches far enough, and you plan on utilising most/all of the extra features, including more up to date file type compatibility........... a 205 would be your best bet IMHO. I went through an 83, 95 and 105 over the years. The "xx5" series really is a step up analog wise but my new 205 is even better again!!!!
  9. ATTN 08boss302.......... You do realise that as the Thread starter the onus is on YOU to end this Thread with your findings/purchase decisions ....etc Otherwise all the helpful posters and I must come for your legs!!!!........or......even worse.......EARS!!!!!
  10. 08boss302, Your OPPO 203 outputs audio signals simultaneously from every port. Simply select appropriate input on AVR as you mention.
  11. I think you should at least have a listen to the 203 via analog outs first before splashing cash around.........possibly in the wrong area.........( a decent stereo pre instead?) Don't sell your 203 short. I have a 205 which sounds fantastic and the word is that the 203 is no slouch either.
  12. Hi Guys Hoping someone here can help re cost effective repair of a Velodyne HGS 15 plate amp that has started making the dreaded "motorboating" noise. I enquired with Oz Velodyne Distributor a while back and was told a new replacement amp (at over $1K) was the only solution. I am in Melb but can post if necessary. Anyone???
  13. Try and have a listen to an OPPO 205 It should cover all your bases and more in one box. If that's too much $............look for a used 105
  14. A wonderful sounding set of high end active speakers being sold at a very fair price by a gentleman. What else do you need!!!!.... PS.....Hope you know what you're doin mate........
