howdy, newbie here.
I've been mulling over for a while buying an oppo bd93 v buying a DAC. Currently, i have a Denon DVD-1920 which was my universal player until blu-ray came along. My blu-ray is just a cheap Sony BDP BX57.
Here is my problem, i need a universal audio player, I love the sound of the Denon, but it doesn't do blu-ray. the Sony is lacking in the audio dept, and doesn't do DVD-A. I am also short of analog inputs on my amp (i have an integrated amp and do not have surround sound at all just plain old stereo). so the blu-ray goes into the digital input of my tascam cd burner right now, i am basically using that as a DAC (it's not that good), and i listen to it via the analog outs on that instead of it's own.
So looking around i can see the oppo bd-93 which has great video performance, but people seem to think it lacks a little in the audio dept compared to the 95 which i can't afford.
and i see the cambridge audio dacmagic gets great reviews.
if i bought a CA dacmagic and plugged the Denon and the Sony into it, that would do the trick too. it would certainly solve the lack of inputs problem?? i'm more interested in audio performance than video, and i've never owned a dac. would i be better off getting the oppo or buying a dac?
anybody got any thoughts on which way to go??
