SACD: what does OPPP 105 output over HDMI?


Recommended Posts

If I'm playing a SACD on the Oppo105 and providing I have the correct menu options selected, what is the "best" that the Oppo will output over HDMI:

 

1 DSD?

2. Hi Res PCM?

3. RDCD?

 

I'm intrigued about the possibilities of combining with a HDMI dac.

 

Thanks

You can select DSD or PCM (=24/88 conversion from DSD) output over HDMI.

 

What HDMI DAC are you thinking about? A home theatre receiver? There are currently only 3 "audiophile" DACs with HDMI inputs on the market (two NAD and one from Essence), which only support PCM. Bryston will release their BDP3 shortly, which is said to support DSD over HDMI.

Thanks, that's very interesting if DSD from SACD (not just downloads) is output over HDMI.

 

Was thinking about a DAC - I already have a BDP2, so the new Bryston BDA3 would probably be top of my list. However, I understand HDMI is not a great interface for audio?
