OPPO DSD to Onkyo

Hi

In my TV setup ive just upgraded to a Onkyo 875 receiever and playstation for Blu Ray. Has anyone got any direct exeprience of using the Oppo for Multichannel HDMI playback from SACD & DVD-A.

Im trying to decide if its worth buying an Oppo or just stick with my older multiformat player as a PCM input into my Quad CDP 2 in my two channel system.

Thanks

Alan

i might be missing something in your articles but it seems as if you were not overly impressed with the DSD multichannel playback ? have you tried it at the 1.3a standard and if so does it make any difference.

Thanks

Nope. I was impressed but, with this player and this processor, I slightly preferred having the DSD-PCM conversion in the player over having it in the processor. Either way is pretty good.

?? Dunno. Doubt it but, to some degree, everything makes some difference.
